Man charged with driving dangerously at police
A MAN was charged after allegedly driving dangerously towards a police car in Kingscliff.
Officers were patrolling Ozone St on Friday morning when they saw a vehicle parked on the road in Sand St.
They found the driver was wanted for a number of offences and tried to speak with him but he allegedly drove away, narrowly missing the police car.
When police tried to arrest the driver, he reversed at speed.
A pursuit began but was quickly ended due to the dangerous driving and speed of the accused.
The driver was arrested in Murwillumbah on Saturday and charged with driving a motor vehicle during a disqualification period, police pursuit, predatory driving, using an offensive weapon to prevent lawful detention, possession of a prohibited weapon and goods in custody.
The man was refused bail to face Tweed Heads Local Court.
