A man, who is banned from driving until 2052, has been arrested after he was stopped while riding a motorbike in Tweed Heads on Thursday evening.
Officers from Tweed/Byron Police District say they were patrolling about 6pm when they saw a motorcycle allegedly being ridden dangerously along Ducat Street.
They stopped and spoke to the rider and checks revealed he was disqualified form holding a licence until August 2052. Police allege the man was also in possession of methamphetamine, and the number plates on the motorcycle did not match the registration.
The 36-year-old man, from Coolangatta, was arrested and taken to Tweed Heads Police Station where he was charged with drive recklessly/furiously or speed/manner dangerous, drive while disqualified, having goods in custody suspected of being stolen, and possess a prohibited drug.
The man was refused bail before appearing in Tweed Heads Local Court today (Friday 11 December), where he was again refused bail and will re-appear in the same court on 28 January 2021
