Before I go, here’s a quick recap of what happened today (a lot):
Police have arrested a 36-year-old NSW man who was allegedly in the ACT from a Covid-19 hotspot, and in possession of cocaine.
Apparently the man refused to stop his car when Police asked him to do so at 1.50am on Sunday. He then abandoned his car and ran, but police caught and arrested him.
