The Queensland Police Service is investigating a serious three-vehicle traffic crash in Strathpine which resulted in the arrest of a man this afternoon, June 22.  

At 1.45pm, a police officer was responding to the crash at the intersection of Gympie and Samsonvale roads when he was confronted by a highly agitated male driver inside a vehicle. 

Police will allege the man was drinking from a wine bottle and was under the influence of the substance. After the officer attempted to take the bottle away several times, it was allegedly thrown towards him.

After giving numerous directions for the man to remain in the car, it will be alleged he continued to attempt to leave the vehicle by kicking the door into the officer, who used physical force to contain the man in the vehicle. 

The man continued to attempt to leave the car and after several verbal warnings, a Taser was deployed by police. 

Additional officers arrived on scene and another officer was allegedly spat on by the man. 

He was then taken in custody and transported by ambulance to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s hospital for treatment to minor cuts, where he remains. 

Senior police have reviewed body worn footage of the incident. 

Investigations are ongoing.
