A MAN in his 30's who allegedly injured three police officers in a wild crime spree has pleaded not guilty to four unrelated charges.
Denis Bradley Shillingsworth will fight four charges including escaping police custody; resisting a police officer; being armed with intent to commit an indictable offence; and stalking.
The 37-year-old appeared in Tamworth Local Court on Wednesday to enter pleas, where nine charges related to the alleged crime spree were also mentioned.
Shillingsworth is yet to enter a plea to those nine charges related to a carjacking and the alleged attempted stealing of a highway patrol car while armed, after a fiery crash into a parked car on Vera Street in South Tamworth on December 18.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Cynthia Donovan asked to have the Vera Street matters adjourned.
"I am instructed the DPP has not received a brief at this stage and we are seeking an adjournment for it to be served," she said.
"I think they have elected to take it over."
Police allege Shillingsworth was driving dangerously on Edgeroy Street in South Tamworth and failed to stop.
Shillingsworth is then accused of driving furiously and directly towards police, who had to swerve to avoid him.
The car then pulled into Vera Street and allegedly crashed into another parked vehicle and set it alight. Shillingsworth then is accused of trying to steal the police vehicle, and a parked motorbike.
Shillingsworth will return to court on March 11 for the charges, as police compile the brief of evidence.
The four charges he pleaded not guilty to will return to court February 24.
Shillingsworth made no bid for bail and it was formally refused.
