Man 'drives car into Queensland Police headquarters'

A MAN is expected to be charged today after he allegedly drove his four-wheel-drive at the Queensland Police Service's headquarters in Brisbane overnight.

About 11.54pm, police say the 47-year-old Capalaba man allegedly reversed a white Ford Territory at the main entrance to the building on Roma Street.

He was unable to drive up the stairs, but his alleged actions damaged the steps leading to the entrance.

The vehicle then drove away.

Around midnight a concerned member of the public reported seeing a white Ford Territory side swipe another vehicle on the Captain Cook Bridge.

Police were unable to intercept the vehicle as it headed south on the M1 at Taragindi.

At Springwood, the traffic slowed due to traffic congestion for roadworks.

The Ford Territory allegedly rammed a police car and three other vehicles before coming to a stop. Police forced entry to the vehicle and arrested the driver.

The man is assisting police with their investigation.

Police are appealing for anyone who saw the vehicle or was sideswiped or forced off the road to contact police.

Anyone with dash cam vision of the vehicle is also urged to contact police.
