After picking kids up from school today we decided to go to the shopping centre at Hallett Cove. Sitting at the traffic lights we see a bit of a commotion but no big deal (I thought) then flashing lights, intially I thought there had been an accident.
Next thing I see a guy leg it across the road and then guys with guns chase him, catch him and pin him to the ground...... This was the armed response unit, my chin was on the ground and my heart racing never seen anything like it. It all happened so fast and the little blue car was stopped just as we got there. They had 4 people sitting at the side of the road with their hands behinds their head whilst pointing guns at them. I think the other guy tried to make a runner too, but all seemed to be very relaxed and under control (except for me).
Anyway we drove into the carpark at HC and saw the helicopter overhead and all these cops with guns, very surreal. We were very close to the whole thing and I was a bit worried to get out the car. My kids (being typical boys) thought it all very exciting and have been asking questions all night. I'm just glad no-one got hurt.
I've been sitting watching for something to come on the news tonight but nothing. Lets face it must be quite serious for the response these guys had (they were driving a P plate car), but I'm sure this was not for using their mobile whilst driving or speeding lol!!
Anyone there?? Very scary!!
