A man wanted for crimes in Queensland has allegedly been caught train surfing on the NSW north coast.
The man was riding on the roof of a southbound freight train near Coffs Harbour when he jumped from the carriage into Boambee Creek about 2:10pm (AEDT) on Saturday, police say.
Several members of the public and two-off duty police officers spotted him in the Boambee Bay Reserve behaving aggressively and erratically.
The officers followed the man to Sawtell Road, Toormina, where he walked into the middle of the road and blocked traffic.
He was subsequently arrested by police and treated by paramedics before being taken to Coffs Harbour Hospital for treatment of minor injuries sustained when he jumped from the train.
The man was later found to be wanted on three arrest warrants by Queensland Police.
He has been charged with apprehension on warrant issued in another state and refused bail to appear in Coffs Harbour Local Court on Monday.
