According to STUFF a real estate agent who punched a top Far North police officer in the face, in a case of mistaken identity, has failed to get his charge dismissed.
Kevin Arthur Lloyd, 27, was charged with assault with intent to injure for an incident against Inspector Riki Whiu in Paihia on April 16.
Whiu is the Far North’s Area Commander and one of the leaders of Far North family violence prevention programme Whiria te Muka (Weaving the Strands).
Whiu was off-duty when the incident occurred. Lloyd mistook him for a man who had assaulted an associate.
In the Kaikohe District Court on Friday, Judge Michelle Howard-Sagar said the summary of facts showed Lloyd approached the victim, where he was sitting at a table with his daughter, introduced himself, then asked if he knew his friend.
