Motorists travelling from Ocean Shores to Brunswick Heads were met with the unusual sight of a car mounted on the roundabout at Brunswick Valley Way and Riverside Crescent on Wednesday morning.

Detective Chief Inspector Matt Kehoe from Byron Bay police station told The Echo that police responded to the incident around midnight and arrested the young driver.

The 16-year-old was charged with domestic violence assault, assault police, resisting arrest, special range drink driving, and being an unaccompanied learner. Bail was refused and he was due to face the Ballina Children’s Court on Wednesday.

Detective Chief Inspector Kehoe said the driver’s family was making arrangements for the removal of the car.
