A BREWARRINA man, disqualified from driving for 21 years, has been refused bail and accused of leading police on a pursuit.
Albert Coffey, 33, appeared in Moree Local Court to answer five fresh charges following the incident early on Sunday morning.
He’s been charged with police pursuit Skye’s Law, drive recklessly or in a manner dangerous, mid-range PCA, drive motor vehicle during disqualification period and behave in an offensive manner.
Coffey applied for bail during yesterday’s court proceedings but the application was rejected by Magistrate Michael Holmes.
He refused bail and adjourned the matter to October 14 in Moree Local Court.
Police allege Coffey was behind the wheel of a silver sedan which police attempted to pull over just before 5am on Eugene St in Inverell.
Officers allege the sedan accelerated away from police and reached speeds of up to 90km/h in a 50km zone.
Police lost sight of the vehicle but later found it in the driveway of an Elm St house.
Officers say they found 33-year-old Coffey lying in the back of the car before he was arrested and breath tested.
He was taken to Inverell Police Station where he returned an alleged breath analysis of 0.102.
Checks also revealed Coffey is disqualified from driving until 2034.
