A police officer has been injured while making an arrest in Southport overnight.
He was apparently handcuffing a man following a disturbance on Ferry Road around 8pm on Thursday, when the pair took a tumble.
The officer landed awkwardly, with the alleged offender falling on top of him.
He was taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital with a suspected broken leg.
The other man was later charged with a public nuisance offence.
