POLICE were forced to use road spikes to stop a Hackett woman driving dangerously early this morning (July 15).
The woman, a 27-year-old, was driving a white Peugeot when she failed to stop at a red light in Fyshwick at about 12.35am.
Police officers attempted to pull the woman over on Dairy Flat Road in Fyshwick, but she failed to stop, forcing cops to use road spikes on Newcastle Street.
The vehicle continued along Canberra Avenue before coming to a stop in Griffith.
The driver was arrested and was charged with a range of driving offences including dangerous driving, driving without a licence, failing to stop for police, driving an unregistered as well as uninsured vehicle in addition to driving while under the influence of drugs.
Further investigation also led to police to charge the woman with drug possession and charges relating to the possession of a prohibited weapon.
She will face charges at the ACT Magistrates Court.
This year’s ACT election won’t look like any other. Parties have a big task ahead persuading undecided voters they have what it takes to lead through a changed environment. Indeed, heading to the ballot box may look entirely different too, says "CityNews" political reporter BELINDA STRAHORN.
