Man arrested after Melbourne CBD car rampage

A man has been arrested following a series of crashes in Melbourne’s CBD overnight.

Just after 11.00pm, police were alerted to a man driving erratically along Swanston Street, where he allegedly mounted footpaths, crashing into three businesses.

Shocking footage posted on social media shows horrified onlookers running from the scene in fear.


The 34-year-old continued his rampage by smashing his car through the foyer of Crown Casino.

He then fled the car, running onto the gaming floor of the casino, where he was eventually arrested by police.

The man has since been taken to hospital for assessment.

Miraculously,  no one was injured during the incident.

There are no further details available at this time.
