Victorian police injured in arrest attempt

A driver has been arrested after allegedly speeding off with a police officer inside his car before hitting another cop in Central Victoria.

The 36-year-old man and his passenger, a 24-year-old woman, refused to cooperate with officers after being pulled over for erratic driving in the Bendigo suburb of Kangaroo Flat on Friday night, police said.

The driver was tasered but tried to speed off with the male senior constable still inside the car before hitting a female police officer on the Calder Freeway.

Both officers remain in hospital with minor injuries, and the driver and his passenger are in police custody.
