An Australian man went on a rampage with a stolen armored personal carrier Saturday, destroying several mobile phone towers and an electricity substation before he was arrested by police. The 45-year-old man, whose identity was not immediately released, led officers on a 90-minute chase as he crashed the privately owned vehicle into mobile phone towers and telecommunications buildings across six western Sydney suburbs. The pursuit ended when the vehicle stalled as it was being driven toward another mobile phone tower, New South Wales state police said in a statement. Police charged the man with predatory driving, possession of a prohibited drug, use of a weapon to avoid apprehension, driving in a dangerous manner and other crimes. He was ordered to appear in Parramatta Bail Court later Saturday.
