The Herald reports:
A disabled Gisborne man has been arrested after allegedly deliberately driving into a marae, causing several thousand dollars worth of damage, before attacking a passer by’s car and threatening to set himself alight at a petrol station.
How is he disabled?
At some point, the vehicle became stuck in a ditch and the man, who uses a wheelchair for mobility, made his way on to State Highway 2.
So can he walk without it? He made his way to SH2.
When a concerned motorist stopped to give the man assistance, he smashed a wing mirror from the person’s car and was left behind when the vehicle drove off again.
Seems pretty active there.
Soon after, the man was given a ride to Gisborne by another person.
Some time later, he entered a service station and left without paying for a pack of cigarettes.
Again pretty active.
I am curious as to whether the man is deemed so disabled he is unable to work, because from where I am looking, he seems to be pretty capable.
