Man from morning car chase arrested after running over officer

A 34-year-old Valletta resident has been arrested this morning after a vehicle pursuit occurred this morning from Qormi to Paola. 

During the intense encounter, an off-duty police officer who was riding a motorcycle was hit. The man was wanted by the police for a number of criminal offences.

He was spotted driving a Hyundai Lantra at around 0715hrs and immediately attempted to escape by recklessly driving towards the direction of Marsa. 

He caused danger to others in the process, hitting a motorbike in Triq tat-Tromba which was being driven by an off duty officer. The officer, a 25-year-old constable was taken to hospital and later revealed to have suffered slight injuries. 

Members of the Rapid Intervention Unit fired warning shots but the man kept on driving towards Paola via Sir Paul Boffa Avenue. The officers fired shots again, aiming for the tires. 

The man was stopped and arrested at the end of the road. Magistrate Natasha Galea Sciberras is leading an inquiry.

Inflated condom balloon appears in Isle of MTV crowd

Amidst the crowd attending yesterday’s Isle of MTV, cameras captured what seemed to be an inflated condom being waved around during performances. 

The bizarre sight was certainly a highlight of the livestream during Mae Muller’s performance, as the inflated condom blended in with the rest of the balloons used at the event.

Guess the economy isn’t the only thing that’s getting inflated.
