A Queensland man allegedly tried to a grab an officer’s gun out of its holster after a wild car chase west of Brisbane.
It took road spikes, pepper spray and a taser for police to arrest a man who allegedly led them on a wild car chase west of Brisbane and tried to grab an officer’s gun.
Ipswich police were told a stolen ute was being driven through the valley on Wednesday morning.
They laid spikes down on the road to stop the vehicle, but the ute drove over them and sped off towards the town of Gatton.
Officers there followed the ute in a squad car, but it eventually crashed and the driver got out and ran off through backyards.
An officer chased after the man and caught up with him, however, police say he wrestled with the officer and tried to grab his gun.
The officer then used pepper spray on the man, but he again escaped and ran away.
Eventually, the same officer caught up with the man and used a taser to bring him down.
The man, 22, has been arrested and is facing 25 charges.
He’s due to appear in Ipswich Magistrates Court on Thursday morning.
