Man Arrested After Police Pursuit in Coffs Harbour

Police in Coffs Harbour have arrested a man wanted on warrants following a pursuit on Saturday afternoon.

About 4pm, police were patrolling the Pacific Highway, when they detected a Holden Commodore travelling at 136km/h in a 60km/h zone.

Police attempted to stop the car but it failed to pull over, so a pursuit was initiated.

As the pursuit approached Vernon Street, it narrowly missed a collision with a truck before losing control, hitting a stationary vehicle and mounting the footpath.

Police arrested the 27 year old male driver and he was taken to Coffs Harbour Police Station.

Checks revealed the man was wanted on two outstanding warrants.

He was charged with police pursuit (Skye’s Law), drive manner dangerous, unlicensed driver (never held), refuse roadside breath test and breath analysis, exceed speed limit by over 45km/h, and the two outstanding warrants.

He was refused bail to appear at Coffs Harbour Local Court today.
