Female police involved in drunken rampage with forklift

A FEMALE member of the NSW Mounted Police Force is allegedly the mystery passenger on board a forklift in a late night drunken rampage at Australia's agricultural showcase, the Sydney Royal Easter Show.

NSW Police confirmed tonight the woman officer is being investigated as being the passenger who fled the scene after she and a woodchopper took an alcohol-fuelled joyride on the forklift, crashing through show pavilions.

The man, who was three times over the legal drinking limit, was arrested at the scene. The woman was the subject of a statewide search and her identity had remained unknown - even to the most senior police.

The female police officer, who reportedly later fled the scene after her companion was caught, is a member of the world's oldest mounted police force.
