Weekend Courier - - Opinion -

ROCK­ING­HAM de­tec­tives have charged a 20-year-old Rock­ing­ham man af­ter a po­lice chase on Tuesday.

Just af­ter 2.25pm po­lice saw a Mitsubishi sedan with one man on board near the in­ter­sec­tion of Coronata Drive and Tor­bay Mews, Warn­bro.

Po­lice at­tempted to stop the ve­hi­cle but it will be al­leged the driver failed to stop and ac­cel­er­ated away.

The ve­hi­cle con­tin­ued to drive through Warn­bro, Port Kennedy and Waikiki.

It will be al­leged the ve­hi­cle drove in a reck­less man­ner by cross­ing to the in­cor­rect side of the road, caus­ing other road users to swerve.

The man aban­doned the ve­hi­cle on Hal­yard Way in Waikiki and was ar­rested.

Rock­ing­ham De­tec­tives charged Brodie Gavin Beard with reck­less driv­ing, fail­ing to stop, no au­thor­ity to drive and en­dan­ger­ing the life/health of any per­son. He was re­fused bail and is due to ap­pear in Perth Mag­is­trates Court on May 9.
