A man accused of harassing a barrister and then bashing a Queensland police prosecutor who intervened has faced court.

Bryson Ronald Gillmeister, 24, was charged with serious assault of a police officer causing bodily harm over the attack on Sergeant Josh Kelly near the Brisbane Supreme Court on Monday.

Gillmeister was allegedly acting aggressively towards lawyer Gerry Elmore when Sgt Kelly stepped in to calm the situation.

He then allegedly turned his attention to Sgt Kelly, throwing several punches that struck the officer in the head.

Good Samaritans came to Sgt Kelly's aid and the man was arrested.

The sergeant and another man were taken to hospital for treatment.

Gillmeister was also charged with serious assault of a police officer and public nuisance after the incident.

He did not apply for bail in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Tuesday and was remanded in custody to reappear in the same court on August 10.
