Man arrested for driving, weapon and drug charges


ACT Policing officers arrested a 38-year-old Downer man after an incident in Braddon on Monday, 30 January 2023, where he was allegedly harassing and threatening members of the public. 

Police will allege the man was in possession of a folding knife and two clip-seal bags containing white crystalline substances. 

After his arrest, investigations revealed the man was the person of interest in driving incidents on 29 October 2022, when he was allegedly driving while disqualified and that he drove dangerously on public roads and in a car park in Kambah after failing to stop for police. 

The man will face the ACT Magistrates Court today (Tuesday, 31 January 2023) charged with possessing a knife without a reasonable excuse, possessing a drug of dependence, disqualified driving, failing to stop, and aggravated dangerous driving.
