A Porsche driver accused of filming a dying policewoman after a horror Melbourne crash is back behind bars after allegedly putting a noose around a woman’s neck.

Richard Pusey was freed on bail in October while awaiting trial on charges of reckless conduct endangering life and drug offences linked to a crash on the Eastern Freeway in April that killed four police officers.

The officers had pulled over Pusey on the freeway when a truck ploughed into them.

Pusey was arrested on Sunday night and faced court on a series of fresh charges over alleged incidents at his Fitzroy home between Christmas Day and Sunday.

He faced Melbourne Magistrates Court on Monday.

Documents reveal an allegation the 42-year-old assaulted a woman, put a noose around her neck and threatened to kill her.

He’s also accused of sending abusive and derogatory text messages and making menacing phone calls, and committing offences while on bail.

Part of Pusey’s bail conditions included a curfew and a requirement that he answer the door when requested by officers.

He has been charged with breaching that condition twice, including on Christmas Day.

Pusey did not apply for bail and is due back in court on January 15.
