Vision from PolAir 1 has just been released, showing the car driving on the wrong side of the road and through red lights, before being parked at Southport Sharks on Sunday afternoon.

A 20-year-old Molendinar man has been charged with two counts of dangerous operation of a vehicle while adversely affected by an intoxicating substance, and one count each of failing to stop a motor vehicle, possession dangerous drugs, unlawful use of motor vehicle, and driving without a driver’s licence.
