JOHN Patrick Smith, 42, was seen holding his phone and driving along Abell Rd, Cannonvale, on July 5 at 3.30pm.
As he pulled over and police approached his vehicle they noticed him talking on his phone.
Prosecutor Bernhard Berger said while police were writing him a ticket he got out of his vehicle, yelling that he was going to the police station and drove off.
Duty Lawyer Cleo Rewald said the incident was a misunderstanding as Smith had initially pulled over to make an important call and didn’t notice police were pursuing him until they approached.
Smith plead guilty to obstructing police, failing to stop for police and using a phone while driving.
He was fined $800.
