Melbourne Porsche driver Richard Pusey, who’s awaiting trial on several charges, has been taken to hospital after Victoria Police raided his home.
Police confirmed they had to force their way into a home in Fitzroy following reports of a disturbance around 11.30pm on Sunday.
They found a man on the roof and a Critical Incident Response Team officers negotiated with him “before he surrendered to police without incident”.
“Responding officers held concerns for the welfare of those involved after it was reported people could be heard yelling and windows were being smashed,” Victoria Police said in a statement on Monday.
“The 42-year-old Fitzroy man has been taken to hospital for assessment.”
A woman who was also in the home at the time of the disturbance was not injured and is helping police with their enquiries.
Pusey, who was granted bail two months ago, is due to stand trial at a date to be set on several charges after allegedly filming the aftermath of an April 22 crash on the Eastern Freeway in which four police officers died.
He is charged with outraging public decency, drug possession, reckless conduct endangering serious injury and reckless conduct endangering life.
Pusey’s case will next be mentioned in court on February 10.
