DRIVER GOES ON RAMPAGE – Sunday June 9 2013

– A violent carjacker was subdued by civilians after a rampage through Melbourne’s east yesterday.
Police said the drama began when a man driving his own charcoal Mazda 2 hatchback was involved in a series of collisions on Whitehorse Road at 11:30am.
With his car rendered useless, he approached the driver of a maroon Subaru at the intersection of Whitehorse Road and Station Street in Box Hill.
The Subaru’s driver was allegedly punched repeatedly and dragged from his vehicle. His female passenger got out and was not hurt.
Police say the Subaru then sped west along Whitehorse Road and Cotham Road, crossing on to the wrong side of the road and running red lights until Kew.
Fellow motorists called police as the man made his way erratically towards the city.
Witnesses said he was involved in another two collisions in Kew. Police said the driver tried to steal another car being driven by a man with his wife and three young children, aged 9, 7, and 4, on board.
Bystanders then stepped in and restrained him until police arrived and made an arrest.
One of the officers needed treatment for a head injury suffered while subduing the man.
Police are investigating whether he threatened other motorists with a broomstick during his wild drive. A 39-year-old Keilor man remains under police guard at St Vincent’s Hospital.
The incident is being investigated by detectives from the Whitehorse CIU.
The mayhem follows an incident where a man stole a car with a baby on board at Thomastown – Mark Buttler

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
