Wednesday: A 35-year-old Portland man who allegedly drove through wooden bollards near the angling club and then at people last night has been remanded in custody.
Warrnambool police Sergeant Chris Brown said the incident started about 7.30pm with the man driving erratically along the Lee Breakwater Road in Portland.
He is then alleged to have driven his red Holden Rodeo ute through wooden bollards onto the lawn area of the Portland Angling Club where he dug up the lawn doing burnouts.
That led to a number of people making frantic phone calls to the Portland police station.

The driver has then headed back towards the Lee Breakwater Road, on the wrong side of the carriageway, and turned into Bentinck Street.
"He's continued drive to the entrance of Portland railway station in Henty Street where he parked his ute in the middle of the road," Sergeant Brown said.
"He was intercepted by police officers, refused to undergo a preliminary alcohol breath test, resisted arrest before being handcuffed and placed in the rear of a divisional van."
When questioned by police during an interview the man declined to comment.
He was remanded in custody overnight and will appear in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court today for a bail/remand hearing.
He's been charged with eight offences, including reckless endangering life and serious injury, driving in a dangerous manner, careless driving, refusing to undergo an alcohol test and two counts resisting emergency workers on duty.
He has 16 pages of prior court appearances for offences including drugs and violence.
