A COVID-19 denier who caused public outrage has been arrested in Melbourne, after refusing to speak to police.

Eve Black - a conspiracy theorist who believes COVID-19 is a hoax - first made headlines last week after she filmed herself refusing questions at a border crossing.

Police said they were forced to smash through her car window to arrest the 28-year-old, with police saying they had to do it after she refused to speak to them, refused to wind down her window and refused to get out of her vehicle.

Ms Black has since been released on court summons for failing to produce a licence, breaching the Chief Health Officer’s orders.
