Inspector Dan Skelly from Orana Local Area Command said the vehicle nearly crashed into several parked cars at the location before coming to a stop, after which bystanders stepped in, removed the accused from the driver’s seat and performed a citizen’s arrest, detaining him until police arrived minutes later.
The Dubbo man had been refused service at the Macquarie Inn and was asked to leave the premises.
Inspector Skelly said the man then got into his 2001 Ford Falcon, drove onto a small grassed area and proceeded to do burnouts.
“The burnout has continued from the grassed location, off the kerb into the middle of the car park area and into a neighboring premises,” he said.
“He has then exited the car park onto Windsor Parade and collided with the concrete median strip, driving over that median strip and onto the incorrect side of the road. This impact has caused the front tyre to burst and significant damage to the undercarriage of the vehicle, spilling oil onto the roadway.
“The vehicle has driven into the intersection at Birch Avenue on the incorrect side of the road and back into the car park at the licensed premises, conducting another large burnout.
“By this time a large crowd of onlookers had gathered and a number of persons were filming the actions of the accused.
“The vehicle has then nearly collided with a number of parked cars at the location and has come to a stop where bystanders have stepped in and removed the accused from the driver’s seat and detained him until; police arrived moments later.”
The man was arrested and taken to Dubbo Police Station where he refused a breath analysis, Inspector Skelly said.
The 33-year-old Dubbo man was charged with several serious driving offences, including high-range drink driving, drive in a manner dangerous, driving while suspended and using offensive language.
He was refused bail to appear before Dubbo Local Court.
