A driver who led police on a cross-border chase on Saturday night had evidence of recent ice use and a syringe stashed down the front of his underpants, according to a police statement.
On Monday, Daniel Bradley Neville, 27, from Arundel on the Gold Coast, pleaded guilty to a range of dangerous and reckless driving charges in Tweed Heads local court.
Neville, who has been jailed for 16 months, also agreed that he was under the influence of methamphetamines when he was pulled over by police after a wild chase monitored by PolAir Queensland.
APN Media reported that the white Holden Astra Neville was driving, exited the wrong way from the Kennedy Drive off-ramp, into oncoming traffic and ran seven red lights in the Tweed Heads area.
Neville then drove back onto the highway and over the top of police spikes before finally coming to a halt more than 500 metres further down the road.
According to the report police found ‘a capped syringe down the front of his underpants’ and two small bags that appeared contain ‘trace amounts of methylamphetamine’ on the floor of the car.
Throughout the ordeal the female owner of the car was sitting beside Neville in the passenger seat, APN reported.
