Three people have been arrested after they were caught in an allegedly stolen Audi crashing into a police car.
The Audi Q7, valued at more than $100,000, was reported to have crashed into the police vehicle on Friday afternoon as officers attempted to pull over the luxury car outside a courthouse in Brisbane’s CBD.
Two officers in their car were injured in the chaos, before the Audi’s three occupants were dragged out and handcuffed.
Police reportedly had to smash the driver’s window to pull him out and were seen holding him in a headlock.
Another male passenger tried to flee the area but was caught and arrested, as was a woman sitting on the curb.
The injured officers were taken to hospital with only minor injuries after the incident and the damaged vehicles were towed from the area.
