A shirtless man has been tasered and arrested in one of Australia’s biggest nightclub districts after a police officer spotted him riding on the roof of a moving car.

A Queensland police officer busted the young man riding on top of the car on Wickham St in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane‘s famous nightlife area.

Footage captured by a witness and shared to Reddit on Monday showed the man beginning to lie down while the car passed the officer before the vehicle came to a stop.

The officer ordered the man off the top of the car and pulled out her taser.

She repeatedly yelled at the man ‘get on the ground or you’re going to get tasered’.

Initially the man complied and sat on the ground but then stood up and began walking away while waving his arms around. 

The officer quickly followed and tasered him, causing him to drop to the ground.

The man tried to sit up again but the officer yelled at him to ‘lie down’ and arrested him.

Witnesses in the video could be heard cheering on the officer and making fun of the man.

Many commenters under the video said the man looked intoxicated and called him out for the dangerous behaviour.

‘He could have seriously injured himself or others,’ one person wrote.

‘These are not sober decisions,’ another said.
