'Serial hoon' filmed mowing down a spectator at illegal car meet arrested



An alleged serial hoon who was filmed mowing down a spectator at an illegal car meet in Melbourne has been arrested.

The P-plater is accused of striking a man when his Holden Commodore spun out of control at the gathering in Derrimut last month.

The 19-year-old smirked as he was marched from his Tarneit home before dawn, telling 9News "it is what it is".

Police believe he would have suffered catastrophic injuries, but he has not identified himself.

Officers from Victoria Police's anti-hoon taskforce, Operation Achilles, raided the alleged driver's home this morning at 5am.

They seized his car, a light blue silver Commodore at a nearby factory.

He is facing a decade behind bars, charged with multiple offences including reckless conduct endangering life and serious injury, careless driving and driving in a dangerous manner.

The man has been bailed to appear at Sunshine Magistrates' Court in December.
