Young woman who sparked outrage over checkpoint stunt dramatically arrested
A young woman who sparked outrage by bullying her way through a police checkpoint heading out of Melbourne’s lockdown zone has been arrested.
It was quite the dramatic arrest, too.
Eve, who refused to hand over any identification or reason for going through the checkpoint last week, filmed the incident and published it online as though she was some sort of hero.
Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, she is a COVID-19 sceptic.
Eve was arrested in Carlton on Wednesday afternoon.
Police caught up with the 28-year-old but she again refused to co-operate.
So police broke a window in her car before arresting her.
The woman has been released pending summons for traffic-related offences, failing to produce a license, failing to produce name and address, and breaches of the Chief Health Officer’s directives.
