A man charged with damaging a diplomatic residence after ramming his car into the gates of the US embassy in Australia was yesterday ordered to undergo a mental health assessment.
Adrian Richardson, 30, appeared in a magistrates court after his arrest for allegedly revving his engine and deliberately crashing into the gates of the American compound in the Australian capital Canberra on Wednesday evening.
US ambassador Jeffrey Bleich was at home at the time, said police, with the bomb squad sent in as a precaution. Nothing suspicious was found.
