Gimp rescued in Reid

By johnboy - 20 June 2013 31

ACT Policing has arrested two men after locating a man who was being forcible confined in a Reid apartment while conducting investigations in a traffic incident yesterday (June 19).

Around 7am, ACT Policing City Patrol officers responded to reports of two suspicious men loitering around a vehicle at Bega Court, Reid. While conducting patrols around the area, police located the two men driving a white Toyota Yaris along Boolee Street.

Officers were able to visually identify the driver of the car and attempted to conduct a traffic stop, however the car accelerated away and fled police. The officers didn’t attempt to pursue due to knowing the identity of the driver.

Around 11.30am, officers patrolling the area saw the Toyota Yaris parked beneath a block of apartments at Bega Court. Officers entered an apartment within the complex which contained a number of people and located the driver of the Toyota who was subsequently arrested for traffic offences.

The driver, a 24-year-old man with no fixed abode was conveyed to the ACT Watch House.

While officers were making further enquiries relating to the traffic incident, a man within the apartment approached the officers requesting help as he claimed he was being held in the apartment against his will.

He also informed officers that he had been forced to ingest a large amount of medication and other unknown substances. An ambulance was requested and the man was conveyed to hospital for treatment.

Following further investigations, a 39-year-old Reid man was arrested and conveyed to the ACT Watch House. He has been charged with forcible confinement and aggravated robbery.

The 24-year-old man has been charged with a number of traffic offences and forcible confinement.

Both men are expected to face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning. Police will be opposing bail.

So… just so I’ve got this right…

Police know who he is and where he lives (as stated the reason a Yaris was able to get away from the police). They go to “where he lives” later to find “his” car and waddayano; he’s there too.

Yet has has “no fixed abode”. Riiiight. I guess it did rain on Monday.

Nice arm waving, PBO. You are just trying to drag people away from the real issue. It is YOU that has been calling 000 about the headlines, isn’t it? 🙂

I’m plumping for 5.

Sounds like it could be the fifth considering he almost had his penis cut off.

Bring out the Gimp!

But the Gimp’s sleeping.

Well, I guess you better just get part of him then.

Peanut, for when the term bogan is too educated, classy and considerate.

+100!

I plan to use the word ‘peanut’ in as many conversations as possible now. And by naming your car the ‘4WD of righteousness’, you automatically fall out of the asshat category.

Is this true? Have “people” (and I use that term loosely) really rang ‘000’ to report headlines of poor taste?

Wow, this seems like a good story…….I so want to know more…… Someone at Bega Court being “Forced” to take drugs as well made me laugh!

I was road-raged by a white Yaris around there about 8 months ago and I really hope that it is the same guy (skinny, wide-eyed and unfed, rat like features, far too poor to be a bogan).

I wanted to stop and give him a life lesson about courtesy towards other drivers and taste of my tennis racquet of urban justice for driving like a total peanut. I would have totally gotten away with it too because the driver was a peanut, dressed like a peanut (dirty tracksuit, cap, bumbag full of peanuts) and it looked like he was driving around delivering peanuts to other peanuts like he owned the road.

And when I confronted him with his actions (Flashed lights and yelled peanut based obcenities) he had the peanut-induced idea that his yaris could intimidate my Silver 4WD of righteousness (Yes, I am one of those asshats), He really tried to swerve me off the road when we got onto Northbourne, he really, really tried god bless him.

When he couldnt achieve his desire to run me off the road he tried to get in front and slam on his brakes, he just couldnt get in front (Thanks to you, Other curious drivers)

Admittedly I did worsen the situation by blowing him a kiss and yelling “Settle down precious” with a laugh and a smile much the entertainment of the truckies driving around us.

I put an end to it when I changed into his lane to forcibly slow him down and he unhappily had to deal with it, he then turned into off to Havelock House with his finger out the car and I assume it was pointed at me.

And now here we are.

BEST. POST. EVER.

Let us hope that even now, memories of this encounter ruptures his peanutty hemorrhoids.

This would be comedic if it wasn’t for the alleged forcible confinement.Oh and as to the ACT plods intro ‘being forcible confined’ hmm yep that makes sense 🙂
