Unlicensed driver leads police on dangerous pursuit in stolen Audi convertible

AN unlicensed driver has been arrested and charged after he allegedly led police on a dangerous pursuit through Sydney in a stolen Audi convertible on Saturday.

Police say they were alerted to a car driving dangerously in the Glebe area just after 11am.

Upon arriving, officers attempted to stop an Audi convertible, but the vehicle accelerated and ploughed into several parked cars before driving away.


A pursuit was initiated and continued through a number of streets before it was terminated on Parramatta Road.

The driver of the Audi lost control and crashed the car a short time later. He was arrested a short distance away.

The 19-year-old man was taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital for treatment of a sore back and to complete blood and urine testing.

He was then taken to Newtown Police Station where he was charged with a number of offences including take and drive conveyance without consent, police pursuit, never licensed person drive on road and a warrant offence.

He was refused bail and will appear in Parramatta Bail Court today.
