Covid-19 conspiracy theorists have proudly shared footage online of a rowdy wedding party forcing a police car to flee from a suburban street.
Intense video footage shows a Victoria Police Highway Patrol BMW drive towards a motorcyclist and dozens of young men standing in the middle of the road just north of Melbourne in Glenroy.
The police car turns on the sirens as the group circled the BMW and attempted to prevent it from moving down the road.

The man behind the camera extends his middle finger to an officer sitting inside the car and continues to scream ‘here’, in reference to his gesture.
A man, who appears be dressed in his wedding suit, then presses half his body onto the bonnet and pounds the car with his fists.
There are others dressed for a formal occasion – with some combining formal clothes with sneakers and sunglasses.
The police car then began to reverse away from the group, with the man dressed in a suit chasing after the vehicle as if to shoo it away.
The group cheered as one man screamed: ‘What you gonna do now you f**king pigs?’
As the police car leaves the scene, the man on the red dirt motorbike sped off in the same direction, apparently chasing the cops.

The footage of the rebellion was promptly picked up and circulated online by coronavirus deniers, who believe the pandemic is a hoax and part of a conspiracy to control the public.
Police have launched a manhunt for the men captured in the alarming vision and have urged anyone with information to come forward.
A police spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia the incident caught on camera happened on Sunday afternoon, but trouble had been brewing earlier in nearby Dallas, which borders Broadmeadows.
‘Police initially received reports of dangerous and erratic driving in the Dallas area about 11am but parties involved had dispersed before officers arrived,’ she said.
Patrol units were dispersed to the area and located vehicles matching the earlier description of those involved in the Dallas incident in Glenroy at about 1pm.
It was then that tensions quickly escalated.
‘A single police unit approached these vehicles and witnessed three motorbikes being ridden erratically before they were rushed by a group of people,’ police said.

‘The group became increasingly aggressive and officers decided to reverse away for the safety of the group and themselves.’
The motorbike riders and those in the group fled the scene before additional police units arrived.
Minor damage was sustained to the police vehicle involved in the incident.
Police have confirmed 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 behaviour,’ the police spokeswoman said.
Anyone with information that could assist police with their enquiries is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online.
