Gary William Russell, 42, admitted failure to stop and dangerous driving last week. On Sunday, July 17, he was driving a Suzuki Hayabusa motorbike with a passenger on State Highway 1. A police highway patrol unit attempted to stop Russell (due to excess speed) by activating their lights and siren, prosecuting Sergeant Barney Soutar said. The defendant then drove north on State Highway 1 at speeds in excess of 207 kilometres per hour -- this speed was locked by police radar. Mr Soutar said Russell overtook at least 40 cars by crossing double yellow lines and undertook (to the left) at least three vehicles. The pursuit was abandoned by police with the defendant being located a short time later back in Otaki, refuelling his vehicle. Russell initially denied being involved in the chase, but later admitted the facts, Mr Soutar said. He stated that he simply did not know when to stop. Defence counsel Ian Hard said Russell had taken the vehicle off the road and is now only using it for racing. He said he didn t stop because he did not get around to warranting the vehicle. Judge Carrie Wainwright said it was a huge speed. That is the highest speed read- ing I have ever seen by some mar- gin. Russell was disqualified from driving for nine months and fined $500. Driver's antics had to be countered A 19-year-old appeared in court for driving with excess breath alcohol after he grabbed the steering wheel of a friend s car. Barry Foley was found with 448 micrograms of alcohol per litre of breath and admitted the charge last week. He was sitting in the passenger seat of a Ford Laser, which was being driven along River Rd on June 6. Prosecuting Sergeant Barney Soutar said Foley took control of the vehicle and made it crash into a ditch. He said he grabbed the wheel as the driver was veering on to the wrong side of the road. Foley and his friends had been drinking in Castlepoint and the driver was joking around, defence counsel Mike Sceats said. Judge Carrie Wainwright said it was an unusual circumstance. The person who was driving had you in a position of danger and it seems wrong to punish you for that. Foley was convicted and discharged. Anger led to day in court An Upper Hutt man who smashed two glass windows with his bare knuckles said he had learnt only one way to deal with his anger. Matthew Taitoko Waaka, 32, last week admitted two charges of wilful damage. The damage resulted from an argument between Waaka and a worksite manager, prosecuting Sergeant Barney Soutar said. At about 8.20am on August 5, he parked his vehicle at his work site in Akatarawa Rd. The site manager, who is the victim, asked the defendant to remove his vehicle as the company rules banned private vehicles from being parked on site. The defendant became verbally abusive at which the victim told him he was not welcome on the site and should leave. Mr Soutar said the site man- ager sat in his Toyota and started the engine before Waaka punched the driver s side window. The defendant told the vic- tim to get out of the vehicle and fight. He was asked to leave and continued to hurl abuse. Waaka followed the site man- ager to a office about 400 metres away and was again told to leave, Mr Soutar said. He stormed around the office for a short while before punching the ranchslider win- dow with his right hand, breaking it. Duty lawyer Ian Hard said Waaka lost his job as a result of the argument and his employer took money out of his pay for the damage. Obviously he lost his temper, he regrets that. He has suffered a financial loss instantly. Judge Carrie Wainwright asked Waaka if he had received anger counselling. He replied that he had only learnt one way to deal with his temper and said f... do what you want to do. Judge Wainwright told Waaka that if he wanted to make the most of his life he would learn to deal with his anger issues. If you re smart, you will wise up to yourself. He was sentenced to six months supervision, ordered to pay $1030 in reparations and told to undertake anger man- agement.
