A 38-year-old man has been arrested after feeing police on a stolen motorbike, riding on the wrong side of the road at Pomona on the Queensland Sunshine Coast overnight (1 September 2019).
Police will allege that at 9.17pm they spotted a stolen motorcycle on Pomona Connection Road at Pomona and activated their lights and siren.
The rider crossed double lines to the wrong side of the road on a corner and accelerated away, turning into Bakers and Enchelmeier roads before heading on to a track and hitting a wire fence.
“The man fled on foot and was subsequently located by a police dog and arrested,” police say.
The Torquay man has been charged with one count of dangerous driving, burglary, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, stealing, receiving tainted property, unlicensed driving, possession of dangerous drug (amphetamine) and evade police.
He has also been charged with two counts of assaulting police and four counts of obstructing police.
The man suffered non life-threatening injuries to his neck and was transported to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital where he remains.
He will appear in the Maroochydore Magistrates Court at a later date.
