Milos Radovic sentenced to nine years behind bars over samurai sword attack on #Perth cop Andrew Swift. More Here;

A former boxer who smashed a policeman over the head with a samurai sword, leaving the officer with a fractured skull has been sentenced to close to a decade behind bars.

Milos Radovic, 47, hit Sen. Const. Andrew Swift with a sword in July 2017 in an attack described by a witness as something akin to a movie scene.

Radovic argued he had a muscle spasm after he was tasered and accidentally fell forward onto the officer’s skull, but he was convicted of attempted murder after trial.

Supreme Court Justice Bruno Fiannaca jailed Radovic for nine years today for what he described as an “attempted murder of a most serious kind”.

He said Sen. Const. Swift put his life on the line without hesitation to stop Radovic and the former boxer responded by trying to kill him.

“You intended to kill a police officer who was risking his life to protect others,” Justice Fiannaca said

Radovic went to court the day before the attack and unsuccessfully tried to vary a violence restraining order that banned him from going near his ex-wife or their two teenage sons.

He turned up at a Rockingham unit complex owned by his former wife’s parents the next day and screamed “I will f…ing kill yous (sic) all” after banging on his former sister-in-law’s door.
