A MAN will face court later this month after a dramatic scene at an Ipswich fast food restaurant.

Customers at KFC Redbank were forced to jump out of the way as a car was driven straight into a temporary fence outside the restaurant, on Saturday just before 5.30pm.

When police arrived, weapons were allegedly found inside the man's car including a replica gun which onlookers had believed to be real.

Other weapons including a knife and a 'secret ninja weapon' called Manriki-gusari - similar to nunchucks - were also allegedly found inside the man's car.

The 42-year-old man will face three charges later this month when he fronts Ipswich Magistrates Court; unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a knife in a public place and driving a motor vehicle with a suspended licence. 

He is in court on September 29.
