Two Mandurah men charged after Huntingdale police chase, vehicle ramming

TWO men have been charged after a chase in Huntingdale on Wednesday night in which a police car was allegedly rammed.

Officers attempted to stop a white Holden Commodore travelling at excessive speed about 11.10pm.

The driver turned into Pipit Close, where the vehicle turned around and drove into the police vehicle head on, causing minor damage.

Two of the occupants of the vehicle jumped out of the car and one of them allegedly threw a can of alcohol at pursuing officers.

The pair were apprehended and the driver, a 24-year-old from Mandurah recorded a blood alcohol reading more than twice the legal limit.

He has been charged with reckless driving, failure to stop, no authority to drive, false plates, unregistered vehicle, excess .08 and assault to prevent arrest.

He is due to appear in Armadale Magistrates Court on July 14.

A passenger, a 21-year-old man from Mandurah, has been charged with assaulting a public officer and will appear in court at a later date.
