Ramming speed in a Blue Ford Falcon

By johnboy - 24 January 2012 25

A 31-year-old Watson man was arrested overnight for traffic and drug offences.

Between 10.30pm and 11.30pm last night (Monday, January 23), ACT Policing Operations received several calls from members of the public reporting a blue Ford Falcon station wagon ramming into other motorists.

This included reports of the Ford Falcon tailgating at least four separate vehicles with its high beams on, and ramming into these vehicles when they stopped at traffic lights.

Around 11.45pm, a City patrol located the Ford Falcon driving on Cotter Road. A search of the man and his vehicle resulted in police seizing approximately 500 grams of cannabis, 21 pills suspected to be MDMA and around 7.2 grams of white powder, suspected to be heroin.

The man was taken to the ACT Watch House, where he was charged with two counts of furious, reckless or dangerous driving and three counts of trafficking a controlled substance.

He will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning.

Canberra Times is reporting that this was a primary school teacher! Just the sort you want teaching your kids right from wrong.

I was told by a school counsellor that there is no right and wrong, just consequences.

assuming this person does not have insurance, who will pay for the damage to the other cars?

Well, he has a job, so the insurance companies involved will pursue him for it.

‘Had’ a job.

Wouldn’t that breach his human rights for the ACT Dept. of Education to sack him for having a criminal conviction?

I’m pretty sure that the very caring pat on the wrist by the ACT Magistrature should be followed by a very involved process by his employer to give him plenty of care and attention at the expense of people too brainless to be criminal scum.

probably a nsw teacher… they make so much more money than ACT teachers, that’s how he could afford all those drugs.

He had probably had enough of driving amongst the worst drivers in the country. I dont blame him.

Presumably a *Public* school teacher?

Another one for Andrew Barr to worry about. Or did he give away the education portfolio?

Yes, because private school teachers are paragons of virtue, while public school teachers are shifty and listless…

Bloody hell *rolls eyes*

Wow … impressive meltdown.

I have to agree. Why would anyone think that this isn’t going to attract the attention of the police…eventually.

He must have been on some bender, or maybe a cry for help?

Someone must have replaced his white Commodore with a blue Falcon.

No wonder he’s cranky…
