VideoA 45-year-old has been charged after allegedly attempting to ram council workers and doing burnouts on an oval in Redcliffe yesterday.

Two fencing contractors who were forced to take shelter on the back of their work vehicles to escape a hoon in a Hyundai say the erratic driver could have killed someone.

The woman behind the wheel of the Hyundai Getz allegedly ripped up the grass on Redcliffe Oval for up to 15 minutes on Thursday before she was stopped.

Reece Williams said he was glad the incident happened on a quiet weekday not on the weekend when the park is a popular destination for families.

“She carried on for a good 10, 15 minutes just doing doughnuts,” he said.

“She was completely unpredictable, especially when she got out of the car she had her keys and a pair of scissors in her hand.

“My colleague went up to her and tried to grab the keys and as he was grabbing the keys she’s gone in for a cat scratch.”

Jake Hammond said the driver could have killed someone.

It was nerve-racking and scary.

“It was nerve-racking and scary but we just made the best out of it,” he said.

She is due to appear in Perth Magistrate’s Court on Friday December 18.
