Man who led police on reckless chase through Alexander Heights faces court

A MAN is due to face court this month accused of recklessly driving a car to avoid police through an Alexander Heights park in the early evening.

Police began tracking the 26-year-old Tuart Hill man on Alexander Drive about 7pm on March 14.

They followed the accused to a cul de sac at which point he allegedly mounted a kerb and drove through a park at about 50km/h.

Officers later re-started the chase, alleging the man ran a red light and travelled up to 120km/h.

They aborted the pursuit but charged him on March 23.

He was discovered to have allegedly breached a violence restraining order (VRO) dating back to March 16.

Police charged him with reckless driving, failing to stop, four breaches of a VRO and possession of drugs and paraphernalia.

He is due to appear in Midland Magistrates Court on April 21.
