The apprehension comes just days after a group of anti-lockdown protesters clashed with police in the state capital Melbourne at a separate event and almost 200 more Victorians were fined for breaching restrictions.
Victoria is governed by hard-left Australian Labor Party (ALP) leader Daniel Andrews who has seen the state top the national list of infections and deaths during the coronavirus pandemic.
As Breitbart News reported, this is not the first time police under his direction have acted so quickly and with such force against those suspected of violating state requirements during the pandemic.
Video emerged last month of a woman being confronted by state police and violently wrestled to the ground for not wearing a mask. The vision has gone viral and sparked an official inquiry.
The woman - who was subsequently found to have had an exemption for wearing a mask - appears to resist as the male officer grabs her and she is pushed against a wall."You're choking me," she yells and repeatedly swears at the officer before she is forced to the ground:
The woman has been charged with resisting police and assaulting police and the arrest has been referred to an internal Victoria police review body, the Professional Standards Command.
"Police made the decision to arrest the woman after she failed to provide her name and address," a Victoria Police spokesperson said, NINE News reports. "She also did not state she had an exemption for not wearing a face covering."
