Sunday drive Narrabundah style

By johnboy 4 November 2012 28

ACT Policing has arrested a 34-year-old man of no fixed abode, following a pursuit this afternoon (Sunday, November 4).

Around 11am police attempted a traffic stop on white Daihatsu in Stuart Street, Griffith.

The car failed to stop and police activated lights and sirens, pursuing the car through various streets in Griffith and Narrabundah.

The car mounted a gutter in Deeban Place causing a flat tyre. The vehicle came to a stop in Nimbin Street, Narrabundah and the driver exited the vehicle, running down the road.

After a short foot chase police apprehended the driver and he was taken the ACT Watch House.

The man was charged with a range of traffic offences including failure to stop, driving while disqualified and driving with the incorrect number plates attached to the vehicle. He was released on Watch House bail and will be summonsed to court at a later date.

The vehicle pursuit lasted for 3 minutes with the highest speed reached 120km/h in a 60km/h zone.

Just want to point out that it was the police who granted bail to this gent – the judiciary have not been involved yet. I hope I haven’t ruined a good story with a fact.

Well the judiciary would’ve been enjoying a Sunday roast on the Sabbath Bloody Sabbath so the cops were compelled to grant him bail coz the Status Quo must be upheld!

The prices are down, down…. Half price bail, only on Sundays.

The white daihatsu didn’t stand a chance against the unmarked commodore

I dunno – like a rental car, that white Daihatsu can go places no police Commodore ever will.

?

I dunno, the old VK’s used to go bush pretty well.

Way back in 1985 I was sitting in the park next to our house in Pambula, we and the park backed onto crown land adjacent to a quarry.

Anyway, there was a new HWP copper in Bega who happened to be female & out to prove herself. She quickly got the name of Miss Piggy from Muppets fame.

She must have seen my mate Chas somewhere down in town & he came screaming up through the quarry on his CR250 with this V8 VK not far behind. He hung a screaming left towards Merimbula and disapeared into the bush, 30 seconds after the VK went down the fire trail after there was an almighty redline of the V8 & a massive crash…….then nothing. The first big table drain got her!

5 minutes later she came sauntering down the trail with the foulest look on her face & no car 😛

That VK got further down that fire trail than anything else without a front and rear diff ever did 🙂

That’s kind of my point – nobody needs that kind of paperwork.

I have it on good authority that losing a virtually brand-new government-issue vehicle casts a long-ish shadow over your subsequent career.

“Miss Piggy” heh? How long did it take the brains trust to come up with that piece of comedy gold?

Wasn’t me & it originated in Bega but as a 14 year old it took my attention away from the Penthouse mag for 5 minutes.

A car chase involving police can be read as a ‘cry for help’.
Please leave it up to our enlightened judiciary to interpret the incident for what it really was and give this poor soul his umpteenth ‘second chance’.

It is just me, or is the way How_Canberran signs off every post with ‘How Canberran’ as awesomely-annoying as good old Krats’ Firstcaps posts? Hahahaha! Whatever happened to Krats?

Capital Punishment?
