A 23-year-old man has been remanded in custody until next month after appearing in court charged with attacking two police officers with a metal pipe.

Road worker Junior Marsh was remanded without plea when he appeared in Hamilton District Court on Thursday on two counts of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and a charge of failing to stop for police.

Two police officers needed hospital treatment after they were allegedly assaulted by a passenger armed with a metal pipe after they stopped a vehicle early on Wednesday.

Peri Fisher, 30, also appeared in court charged with assaulting police, wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and drunk driving.

He was denied bail and remanded without plea.

Both men will reappear in court on February 7.
