Man Fined & Disqualifed For High Speed Chase

April 14, 2016

Appearing in Magistrates Court today [April 14], a 26-year-old man  – who was on crutches — was fined and disqualified from driving after admitting leading police on a high speed chase.

Zikai Cann admitted that he had led police on a high-speed chase, with the Court hearing the police clocked him as doing speeds as high as 110kph.

Cann was fined $1,000 on each of two offences of driving in manner dangerous to the public, and having no third party insurance.

Cann admitted that just after midnight on 20th February 2016, police had sought to stop him in Southampton near Evan’s Bay. Cann failed to stop.

Instead, he turned his cycle around and sped off east on Middle Road. The ensuing high speed chase led from Evan’s Bay to Camp Hill and Spice Hill Roads in Warwick, then over to South Shore Road in Warwick.

Cann then crashed the motorcycle, abandoned it and attempted to run away. However, he had suffered an injury to his lower limb and, consequently, was unable to run far. Police arrested him.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo also disqualified Cann from driving all vehicles for 18 months.
