A man has appeared in court charged with using his dog as a weapon against police.

Bert Leonard Jury, 44, of Grey Lynn appeared at the Auckland District Court this afternoon charged with assaulting two police constables on Friday.

Jury faces a third charge of resisting police custody.

A police spokeswoman said the officers were fine but it was a "very unpleasant experience".

She said one of the constables was attacked and another went to help.

Their uniforms were damaged and police will seek to have the dog destroyed.
