A 50-YEAR-OLD Cameby man has spent the Easter weekend behind bars after he allegedly rammed a ute and threatened a man with a knife.

Officer in Charge of Chinchilla Police Sergeant Gerard Brady said police received a report that a 41-year-old man had been repairing a fence on Good Friday at a Cameby property when another man pulled up in his vehicle and the two became involved in a verbal altercation.

"The 50-year-old Cameby man has subsequently accelerated rapidly and crashed into the victim's vehicle, resulting in serious damage,” Sgt Brady said.

"Police will also allege the man then produced a large hunting knife from his vehicle and made threats towards the younger man.”

Sgt Brady said the younger man ran after the 50-year-old made "threats towards his safety”.

Officers from the Dalby Criminal Investigation Branch executed a search warrant later on Good Friday at a Cameby property, arresting the 50-year-old man and charging him with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, assault and threatening violence.

He was remanded in custody and will appear before the Dalby Magistrates Court tomorrow, where Sgt Brady said police would be objecting to his bail.
