Mount Isa Hoverboard Unit investigate

This morning police officers from the Mount Isa Hoverboard Unit were called to attend a traffic crash on Rodeo Drive.

A silver sedan had crashed into a power pole near the cinema.

When questioned what speed he was doing, the driver stated that he was doing 88 miles per hour.

A 17-year-old man was charged and was in possession of a licence which expired over 30 years ago.

Investigations into the vehicle and what a flux capacitor is, are ongoing.

The Mount Isa Cinema received a loss of power to the building.

Owner Jodi Saunders said the driver got out of the car and asked for a Pepsi.

“He also wanted to know when we would be playing Jaws 19,” Jodi Saunders said.

The damage to the power pole caused a power outage to the area.

Mount Isa Mayor Tony McGrady advised that the power outage caused damage to the town clock, which has stopped working.

“We have repairs underway to save the clock tower,” Mayor McGrady said.

    Shouldn’t there be an alert for imminent thunderstorms/possible lightning?

    • Chris Palmer

      The storm only happened in 1955. The trips in 1985, 2015, 1985A, 1885, 1986, 1931 and 1876 were all properly powered.

    • Roberto Rodriguez

      No that was 1955

  • liz

    LOL….. Why are they in a no landing zone?

  • Benjamin Kelly

    Very funny and well written. Although the DMC Delorean is a Coupe not a Sedan, as it’s only 2-door. 😉

  • Daphne Harris

      And here I was thinking QPS had actually invented hoverboards. Thank you for clearing that up for me KatyCat.


  • John

    Considering the number of reposts and comments and likes on facebook, you guys have made the day of many thousands of people. A job extremely well done for all concerned.

    cool dedication

  • Chris Cooper

    I’ve worked with people who’d fall for this! Very good.

  • Teresa Pidcock

    Hilarious. Loved it, perfect for ‘back to the future day’ 😊

  • RJ

    Police don’t use skateboards so why would they use hoverbards? Maybe if you used hoversegways…

    • Liz

      or maybe if its a joke it doesnt matter

  • Toby Makin

    Thank you for making me grin all the way over from England. I’m sure policing is hard and at times awful and if you have any oportunity to have fun, DO IT! That said, if you nick anyone for doing 88mph, they will come back 30 years earlier and your mum will fancy them (the only occasion I can make a policeman and your mum joke).

  • Carlos Mathers

    So much love for this hahaha

  • Ed Rhodes

    You gotta watch that re-entry, it’s a little bumpy!

  • Andrew


    Fair play to ya!

    for the rest of us there are still longboards to ride, available every future day, including tomorrow;-)
