A Chisholm man will front the ACT Magistrates Court accused of performing a burnout directly in front of a marked police vehicle.
Police were on patrol in Gilmore on Friday (16 September) when officers said a Toyota utility pulled out in front of them at about 5:50 pm.
The ute came to a stop before performing a burnout in front of the marked car for about 20 seconds.
The entire incident was captured by police dashcam.
Police pulled over the ute shortly afterwards, where the 31-year-old driver allegedly returned a positive roadside screen for alcohol. A subsequent test returned a positive breath sample of 0.151, more than three times the legal limit.
The man’s licence has been suspended and his vehicle seized. He was charged with drink driving and improper use of a motor vehicle.
Police reminded the community this type of behaviour would not be tolerated, and encouraged members of the public to report similar incidents to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
