An 18-year-old Richardson man will face court this morning (Thursday October 27) after being arrested for driving while disqualified twice in the one day.
Around noon yesterday, police attended Fullerton Cresent, Richardson after reports of a vehicle doing a burnout in the street.
Police attended the location and discovered a large continual tyre mark along the street and a vehicle parked nearby. Police spoke to man sitting in the vehicle and questioned him about the burnout, but he allegedly denied involvement. Police left the area to conduct further enquires.
Police contacted the man later that day, and he then made admissions to doing the burnout and driving a vehicle while disqualified.
About 2.30pm yesterday, police were again called to the same address in Richardson in relation to a disturbance. Police will allege that the 18-year-old male left the police station and drove to his residence in Richardson. Police will further allege that, at the address, the man drove a vehicle into the passenger side of another vehicle, causing damage to the side door.
The defendant was arrested and taken to Tuggeranong Police Station. He was later conveyed to the ACT Watch House and will face the ACT Magistrate’s Court this morning to answer traffic and property damage charges.
