Salim Mehajer arrested for breaching AVO and risky driving

Salim Mehajer arrested for breaching AVO and risky driving

The controversial former deputy mayor of Auburn was arrested last night after a vehicle crash which led to risky driving charges as well as two counts of violating an AVO.

Controversial businessman Salim Mehajer is effectively under house arrest after allegedly breaching an apprehended violence order taken out on behalf of his estranged wife, a Sydney magistrate says.

A Kingsgrove resident told Channel Nine News he was woken up by the collision, which occurred near a roundabout.

Salim Mehajer and John Ibrahim are not believed to have been in attendance.

"There was a guy being very aggressive in the vehicle - cursing, swearing, saying he was going to hurt somebody", the witness told Nine News.

The court heard Ms Learmonth was walking to her friend's vehicle to get McDonald's when she saw the white auto allegedly driven by Mehajer approach.

The vehicle crash is Mehajer's second this year.

The controversial businessman was recently involved in another auto crash, on his way to a court appearance, which sparked a police investigation.

The arrest tops off an intense week for the Mehajer family.

Police described the shooting as "certainly brazen".

The private wedding went ahead on Saturday night, in a marquee in the Merrylands backyard of Ibrahim's mother.

The police prosecutor opposed bail saying there were risks Mehajer would commit further serious offences and there was concern he would interfere with witnesses or evidence - namely dash cam footage inside the auto during the collision.
