A SECURITY guard at a Leavers event has been charged with assaulting a police officer after he allegedly bit the senior constable in a scuffle.

Police were at the Leavers Entertainment Zone in Quindalup about 8pm last night and spoke to two security guards who they believed were acting erratically.

The two guards, a 22-year-old man and a 26-year-old man, were removed from The Zone and searched.

Officers then questioned a third security guard, who then allegedly became aggressive and attempted to run from police.

He was restrained after a struggle, during which he bit a male senior constable on the hand causing his skin to break.

He was subsequently searched, and an amount of what is believed to be methamphetamine was located on him.

This item will require further testing.

A 22-year-old Secret Harbour man has been charged with assaulting a public officer.

He will appear before the Busselton Magistrates Court on December 14.

Inquiries are continuing into the matter.
