ACT Policing has arrested a 20-year-old Gordon man following several driving offences Sunday night (September 8).

About 9.30pm, police received a report of a disturbance and a vehicle performing burnouts in Derrington Crescent, Bonython.

Around 10.15pm Tuggeranong Patrol saw a car matching the vehicle’s description and attempted to perform a traffic stop; however the vehicle failed to stop and fled from police.

Police activated emergency lights and sirens and followed the car but lost sight of it along Sternberg Crescent. Police deactivated their lights and sirens but continued along the road.

As they continued along the street they saw the vehicle had left the road and came to rest on the grass nature strip south of Sternberg Crescent near Erindale Drive.

The occupants got out of the car and started running towards the rear yard of the nearest house.

Police pursued the offenders on foot and arrested the driver.

The driver was transported to Tuggeranong Police Station where he was required to undergo breath analysis. He returned a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of 0.174.

The vehicle has been seized by police. The man will be summonsed to face court on a date yet be fixed.

I know a fair bit about this as i could easily hear the fully sick burnouts 🙂
The nearby residents though feel he’ll just be let off and continue to be a hassle when he comes to visit….

Check if they stole it first.

Then crush it. And upload it to YouTube.

Agreed. After the court case, the car should immediately be sent to the wreckers and the person told “You have five minutes to collect your belongings from the car”. Then have it crushed while they watch.

A waste of a car – cars are useful.
