A man who is accused of ramming three police cars to avoid being arrested in Warrnambool on Saturday will appear in court on Monday.
Police were called to reports of a vehicle driving erratically on Saturday, and when police went to intercept the vehicle the driver is alleged to have rammed two police vehicles about 1.20pm.
The south-west man, aged in his 20s, had also hit a parked car on Grange Road, off Mortlake Road when police tried to pull him over.
