Man arrested after burnout, crashes and assault

15 Jan 2013

A 19-year-old man was arrested by police after a string of incidents in Southbank during January.

The mayhem started after the Narre Warren man allegedly did a burnout in front of police. The Melbourne Highway Patrol then attempted to intercept the man. He refused to stop for police on Southbank Boulevard.

He then drove to the intersection of Power St, where he crashed into a Holden ute.

Not content with that damage, he then allegedly crossed the median strip, travelling the wrong direction onto the Westgate Freeway off ramp and collided with a Mercedes.

He then got out of the car and assaulted the driver of the Mercedes, who was forced to hospital with minor injuries.

He attempted to flee the scene, but was arrested by police a short time after.
