A 25-year-old man is due to face court after allegedly trying to choke a police officer as he attempted to break up a brawl in Queensland's Mt Isa over the weekend.

Police say they were trying to separate the brawling group at the Mount Isa Racecourse around 10.30pm on Saturday when the man started punching and choking a 29-year-old male constable, who had to be hospitalised for treatment.

The man has been charged with seriously assaulting police and will face Mount Isa Magistrates Court on Monday.
