In a dramatic arrest that saw Victoria Police smash her car windshield, a Victorian conspiracy theorist at the centre of a viral border checkpoint video was arrested.
Interaction between Eve Black and Victoria Police caused controversy last week after she seemingly flouted strict laws on coronavirus.
A police officer is heard in the video questioning Black about her reason about driving, to which she replies: “Did I disrupt the peace?
“No,” the police officer can be heard answering. “I’m just asking what your reason for travelling is.”
The officer stops asking questions after some back and forth, and informs Black that she should proceed through the checkpoint.
Black was arrested by Victoria Police on Wednesday in a dramatic arrest in which her windshield was shattered.
Police say at about 1.55pm they have intercepted Black ‘s car in Carlton.
“She was asked to provide her name and address which she refused to do,” Victoria Police said in a statement.
Police then ordered her to show her driver’s licence and justify why she was driving, but she still declined to comply.
“This has led to her being charged by police.
Police were forced to smash the woman’s car window during the arrest because she refused to talk to them, wind down her window, or get out of the vehicle.
The 28-year-old will be charged with traffic number of offences.
“Police will continue to use the powers available to them under the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 to ensure community safety,” a Victoria Police spokesperson said.
“Likewise, they will enforce any offences identified at the time or at a later stage.”
