A Canberra man has received $30,000 in damages after he was wrongfully arrested.
Luke Marsh had a drink on Christmas Day which showed up in a breath test during his routine reporting appointment for bail.
He fled the police station on a bike but was pursued by an officer, who claimed Mr Marsh shoved the bike into him, injuring his legs.
When CCTV footage revealed this was not true, Marsh sued for malicious prosecution.
A judge found the constable involved in the arrest had a dislike for the man and awarded damages.
