Roseville: Fake Kidnapping.
This is a good one.
A 28-year-old man has been charged with several offences including drink driving after he was spotted driving in a dangerous manner last week.
Police will allege that around 11:50 pm on Thursday 3 March they observed the man driving his Ford ute along Archbold Road, Roseville in a dangerous manner.
When they pulled the vehicle over, they observed the man displaying some rather curious behaviour.
Here’s where it gets good.
“It will further be alleged that when Police stopped the man, who was the only occupant of the vehicle, they saw him climb into the back seat and hide,” Police say.
“He then claimed to Police that he had been kidnapped.”
The man refused a roadside breath test and was taken to Chatswood Police Station, “where he continued to refuse to provide a sample of his breath for analysis,” Senior Constable Michael Alexander says.
Further enquiries revealed the man’s licence is suspended.
He was charged in relation to the matter and will face court next month.
