Cheering crowd protects hoon from police
A DRINK-driver was cheered on by a crowd of about 200 people as he

Several people then stood in front of the police car as it attempted to
Police were eventually able to move through the crowd and saw the car again
at the Hume Highway at the Davey Road off-ramp.
They said Froon lost control of the car and crashed into a sign before
continuing along Davey Road.
