WELL-known Tamworth publican Michael Foxman is behind bars in a Sydney jail charged with a new harassment offence.
The owner of the Imperial Hotel has been denied bail after a new investigation by Oxley police saw him locked up by a Sydney magistrate.
Police allege Foxman harassed staff at a workplace in Tamworth electronically from Sydney on Monday.
Oxley police were alerted, and after a short investigation, alerted their colleagues at Eastern Beaches in Sydney who arrested Foxman in Bondi on Monday night.
He was taken to a nearby police station where he was questioned and charged with one count of using a carriage service to menace, harass or offend.
Foxman appeared in Waverley Local Court on Tuesday where he lodged a fresh application for bail.
But his bid for release was rejected by magistrate Ross Hudson.
He ordered Foxman into custody of Corrective Services where he will remain until he fronts Tamworth court in mid-October.
Foxman is due to face a hearing on some charges, and will be sentenced on other offences after his plea traversal application was rejected last month.
