A Melbourne man who'd been awake on a drug bender for three weeks has been jailed for a "terrifying" carjacking rampage and high-speed police chase.
Patrick McMillan, 34, said he couldn't recall any of his "disgraceful" actions in November 2017, when he and another man drove through Melbourne at speeds of up to 200 kph, stealing two cars at gunpoint.
Today, McMillan was sentenced in the County Court of Victoria to 14 years' jail and must serve at least 10 years and four months before he is eligible for parole.
Vision from the Police airwing captured the moment McMillan ripped a woman from her vehicle at gunpoint.
A police officer can be heard relaying information from the helicopter and appealing for units to move fast.
"He's pulling the driver out," the officer said.
"He’s got a handgun out towards someone running to assist. He’s in the driver’s seat. Someone else is jumping into the car.
"He’s trying to pull the occupant out. He’s thrown the gun. Someone has thrown a gun.
"Now is the time for units to move in."
Witnesses tried to rush in and help the victim, but ducked for cover when the gun was pointed at them.
