A Tabulam man tried to escape from police by car then on foot during an incident last Friday.
Police will allege that they saw a car driving along Plains Station Road, Tabulam, mid-morning.
The driver, a 28 year old Tabulam man, drove into the path of a police vehicle. A collision was only avoided due to swift evasive action by police. The vehicle was followed and reached speeds over 190km/h before police lost it.
Police located the vehicle again on Fairfield Road where it became stuck on top of a dirt mound. The man ran from police but was chased down and arrested.
When searched he was found to be in possession of a large knife. Checks on his licence revealed he has a Learners Licence. Police then took the man to a Tabulam address. There they located handcuffs, ammunition and a replica pistol.
The 28 year was issued a Future Court Attendance Notice on charges of Possess Ammunition Without a Licence, Firearm Found at Premises Subject to Prohibition Order, Possess Pistol, Possess Prohibited Weapon Without Permit, Drive Furiously, Drive Manner Dangerous, Exceed Speed Limit by greater than 45km/h, Learner Not Display ‘L’ Plates, Unaccompanied Learner, Not Carry Licence, Enter Inclosed Lands Without Lawful Excuse and Custody of Knife second+ Offence. His licence was also suspended.
He will appear at Lismore Local Court in April.
