Way to upgrade from “stern talking to” to “criminal record for assault”. That’s how you win at life!

You’d have to be an absolute facktard to assault police after you’ve been busted for being an idiot.Perhaps repeated tasering might make them reconsider their actions?

I wonder if that was the same person who has been riding a pocket bike around in Fyshwick lately? I’m guessing I won’t be hearing it today then.

those horrible little mini-bikes are loud-as. What dicks, thinking they could blast around on those things and not get complaints or police reports. Good on the cops for acting on this, too often this kind of neighbourhood nuisance is put in the “not important enough” basket.

Hopefully they get a decent amount of time locked up. Doubtful in this town though

Idiots, would have got a slap on the wrist or fine at worse.

Does anyone know where you can actually ride these? They’re not allowed on the road, you can’t ride them in the forest as police bust people, the govt closed down all the bike tracks like the one in narrabundah. Seems like people riding them through the burbs is the result.

Private land only, i.e. your back yard.
