Default Tank on the streets of Australia

SYDNEY (AFP) - An Australian man allegedly used a restored army tank to destroy mobile phone towers on a rampage through Sydney early Saturday, police said.


Police said officers patrolling the western suburbs of Australian's largest city came across the privately-owned tank being used to destroy an electricity sub-station in the early hours of Saturday morning.

They followed the vehicle through several suburbs for 90 minutes as it smashed into mobile phone towers.

The low-speed pursuit, which police said averaged 30 kilometres (19 miles) an hour, finally arresting the driver after it stalled.

"The tank left a path of destruction in its wake, bringing down a number of mobile phone towers and relay sheds," New South Wales police said in a statement.

The 45-year-old driver was charged with a number of offices, including predatory driving, possessing a prohibited drug and using a weapon to avoid apprehension.

He will face a bail hearing later Saturday.

Police gave no reason why the man targeted mobile phone towers

I couldn't stop laughing when I saw this. Now that I think of it though, it's pretty scary that a tank can be so easily stolen.

Still, I hope this guy doesn't go to jail. Dude deserves a medal.
