A MAN who had to be tasered after he allegedly threatened police with a knife at Lemon Tree Passage on Friday night has been refused bail in Newcastle Local Court.
Braiden Young, 24, was charged with two counts of intimidation and being armed with intent after he walked into the front yard of a home on Cambridge Avenue and confronted officers with a knife about 11pm on Friday.
Police say they had been called to the home three times for noise complaints during Friday evening and after leaving the third time allegedly heard Mr Young threatening a woman.
Young is then accused of walking out into the front yard of the home towards police holding a knife. Police say they told Young to drop the weapon, but he ignored them and they hit him with a taser.
He was arrested and appeared in Newcastle Bail Court on Saturday, where he made a failed bid for bail.
He was back in court on Monday and did not apply for bail and the matter was adjourned until March 30.
