Covid-19 conspiracy theorists proudly shared online footage of a noisy wedding party that forced a police car to flee a suburban street.
Intense video material shows a drive by the BMW Police Highway Patrol BMW on a motorcyclist and dozens of young men standing in the middle of the road north of Melbourne in Glenroy.
The police car turned on the sirens as the group circled the BMW trying to prevent it from going down the street.

The man behind the camera sticks out his middle finger at an officer sitting in the car and keeps shouting “here” in response to his gesture.
A man who appears to be in his wedding suit then presses half his body against the hood and hits the car with his fists.
There are others dressed for a formal occasion – some combine formal attire with sneakers and sunglasses.
The police car began to move away from the group and the man in a suit chased after the vehicle as if to scare it away.
The group cheered when a man yelled, “What are you going to do now, you King of Pigs?”
When the police car left the scene, the man on the red dirt motorcycle sped off in the same direction, apparently chasing the police.

The rebellion footage was promptly picked up and circulated online by coronavirus deniers who believe the pandemic was a hoax and part of a conspiracy to control the public.
Police have started a manhunt for the men trapped in the alarming vision and have asked anyone with information to come forward.
A police spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia that the incident took place on camera Sunday afternoon, but that nearby Dallas, which borders Broadmeadows, has had previous problems.
“Police initially received reports of dangerous and unpredictable driving in the Dallas area around 11 a.m., but the parties involved had disbanded before officers arrived,” she said.
Patrol units were distributed to the area and located vehicles that matched the earlier description of those involved in the Dallas incident at Glenroy around 1:00 p.m.
At this point, tensions quickly escalated.
“A single police unit approached these vehicles and saw three motorcycles riot before being rushed by a group of people,” police said.

“The group became increasingly aggressive and the officers decided to withdraw for the safety of the group and themselves.”
The motorcyclists and members of the group fled the scene before more police units arrived.
The police vehicle involved in the incident was slightly damaged.
Police have confirmed that detectives already have “numerous strong leads” that are being investigated and are confident of identifying those involved.
“We will not tolerate this kind of irresponsible and dangerous behavior,” said the police spokeswoman.
Anyone with information that could assist the police in their investigation is encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1800 333 000 or file a confidential report online.
