– It can be revealed that a man shot dead by police had at least 99 serious violent criminal convictions.
Vlado Micetic, 44, was gunned down after allegedly confronting a highway patrol senior constable with a flick knife, after being pulled over in Windsor on Sunday night for driving with stolen number plates.
The career criminal has prior convictions dating back to the 1980s, including attempted armed robbery, aggravated burglary, being armed with offensive weapons, in possession of a stolen or unregistered firearm, recklessly causing injury and beating a woman and leaving her for dead.
His victim suffered a fractured skull, ruptured ear drums and broken nose.
Micetic, from St Albans, also posed as a sergeant in the police Special Operations Group, producing a police badge to gain entry to a property and search for a “snub-nosed revolver”.
He once produced what appeared to be a gun, waving it around, in a bid to rob the Beaconsfield Hotel in St Kilda.
A psychiatrist who assessed Micetic said he might have suffered from a “paranoid psychosis consisting of persecutory delusions involving a widespread conspiracy to kill”, which was “perhaps the consequence of long-term abuse of psychogenic substances”.
The assessment said he had “a tendency to slip into substance abuse when levels of stress run high” with psychiatric problems “much exacerbated by drug abuse”.
His Facebook account is littered with pictures of guns and bullets, and his Twitter account details rumblings and messages to stars Lady Gaga, Pink, Shakira, Brad Pitt, Mel Gibson and Jessica Gomes.
A sentencing judge described Micetic, who spat on the floor as he was led from the court, as having “a remarkable history of offending”.
However, Micetic had his sentence reduced on appeal at least twice.
On Sunday, he was driving a white two-door Hyundai with false number plates when he was pulled over on Union Street, Windsor at 10:40pm.
The senior constable was allegedly confronted by Micetic when the officer drew his gun and fired three shots into his upper body.
A woman in the Hyundai fled and remains on the run. Police say they know who she is and have urged her to contact them.
Police were continuing to review footage of the incident from the senior constable’s car and CCTV from nearby buildings.
The homicide squad and Professional Standards Command are investigating.
Police will prepare a report for the Coroner – Jon Kaila


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.
