Real Life GTA In Australia

Was this you, Ryn?
SYDNEY (AFP) - An Australian man allegedly used a restored army tank to destroy mobile phone towers on a rampage through Sydney early Saturday, police said.

Police said officers patrolling the western suburbs of Australian's largest city came across the privately-owned tank being used to destroy an electricity sub-station in the early hours of Saturday morning.

They followed the vehicle through several suburbs for 90 minutes as it smashed into mobile phone towers.

The low-speed pursuit, which police said averaged 30 kilometres (19 miles) an hour, finally arresting the driver after it stalled.

"The tank left a path of destruction in its wake, bringing down a number of mobile phone towers and relay sheds," New South Wales police said in a statement.

The 45-year-old driver was charged with a number of offices, including predatory driving, possessing a prohibited drug and using a weapon to avoid apprehension.

He will face a bail hearing later Saturday.

Police gave no reason why the man targeted mobile phone towers.

Sometimes, when my cellphone reception is really bad, that doesn't seem so outrageous...

He was clearly furious when he answered no when asked, can you hear me now?
