A man has been ar­rested for al­legedly ram­ming a po­lice car in Be­nalla on Satur­day night, while of­fi­cers were at­tend­ing another call.

Po­lice were called to a home in Faith­ful St about 7 pm, due to re­ports of fam­ily vi­o­lence.

Po­lice al­lege a man ar­rived at the prop­erty and be­came ar­gu­men­ta­tive with po­lice be­fore get­ting into his car.

He al­legedly crashed into the unoc­cu­pied di­vi­sional van and fled the scene be­fore of­fi­cers could de­tain him.
