"At Cowra's dawn service at 6.15am... a man was heard shouting loud, offensive language," Inspector Beard said.

"The man was approached by police and issued with a move on notice."

Inspector Beard said the 48-year-old Cowra man continued to use offensive language and was placed under arrest before a struggle commenced.

He was issued a court attendance notice and will appear before Cowra Local Court on June 19.
