A POLICEMAN directing traffic into a booze bus queue was lucky not to be run down when a recalcitrant driver allegedly drove off straight at him.
A 1998 Mitsubishi Pajero was being directed into the line on Thompson Rd, Carrum, 10pm, Wednesday 10 May, when the driver allegedly veered away and accelerated back onto the freeway.
The policeman jumped clear and took a note of the car’s registration number. Police visited a house in Patterson Lakes and interviewed a man.
He was later charged on summons with reckless conduct endangering serious injury and unlicensed driving.
