A KAMBAH man ended up in hospital on Saturday (September 14) after he fell off his motorbike in an alleged attempt to flee police.
Police say the 28-year-old man was riding an unregistered motorbike dangerously through Wanniassa at about 10am on Saturday morning before he fell from his bike.
He was arrested at about 10.10am in Greenway and during the arrest, officers used a conducted electrical weapon (CEW) to restrain him.
The man was then taken to hospital for a medical examination. At about 6.50pm the man attempted to leave the hospital, but was detained by police while still in the building.
Two people were injured as the man ran through the hospital.
Police are now investigating the events at the hospital and would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident in the hospital, who has not yet spoken to police.
The man faced the ACT Magistrates Court today on 12 charges including firearms, property and driving offences, and escaping from custody.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website using reference number 6438850.
