Police arrest ‘speeding and erratic’ driver

Police tracked a “speeding and erratic” driver from Bendigo to Macedon, where he was eventually arrested, on Thursday afternoon.

A Victoria Police spokesman said officers were alerted to the man’s driving at about 3.40pm and observed him from the air on the Calder Freeway before he was intercepted on the corner of Smith Street and McBean Avenue about an hour later.

The man, who was driving a silver Holden Commodore, is assisting police with their investigation.
