WATCH | Footage of hoons attacking Gold Coast police

A local MP is calling for members of the public to come forward with information about hoons, after a police car was attacked over the weekend.

In footage published by Sam O’Connor, an unmarked police vehicle appeared to be attending a known ‘hoon hotspot’ in Arundel on Friday night, when it was attacked.

Hoon spectators threw various items at the car, as it appeared to be turning around in the street.


The footage has prompted calls from Mr O’Connor for anyone with information to come forward.

He also showed daytime footage of the area on Telford Place, showing it darkened with multiple skids.

Mr O’Connor says it’s just completely unacceptable behaviour.

“This area is a real hotspot for hoons, I’ve even heard stories of them doing it in broad daylight.

“Local businesses are sick of it.

“Behaviour like this is not on. Our police work hard with limited resources and the last thing they need is to deal with this sort of nonsense.

“It could have easily been a lot worse and someone could have got hurt,” the Facebook post reads.
