Arrest referred to IBAC


AN arrest following a police pursuit that ended in Henry Crescent, Seaford on Sunday 6 May will be reviewed by the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC).

A video of a 22-year-old Seaford man being arrested was posted on Facebook showing a police officer kick out at the man after he was tackled to the ground by other officers.

“As the matter is undergoing investigation it would be inappropriate to comment further,” a Victoria Police spokesperson said.

The Seaford man was charged with recklessly exposing emergency workers to risk by driving, four counts of conduct endangering life and serious injury, dangerous driving while pursued, driving in a dangerous manner and at dangerous speed, resisting and assaulting police and driving whilst disqualified and possession of methyl amphetamine. He was remanded in custody to appear in Frankston Magistrates’ Court on 23 May.

A 26-year-old Bayswater man was charged with possessing methyl amphetamine, a drug of dependence, two counts of dealing in property from suspected proceeds of crime and was bailed to appear in Frankston Magistrates’ Court on 10 August.
