THE rear of the car apprentice motor mechanic Leigh Michael Glaister was driving was dragging on the ground emitting sparks when police saw him in October.
Both back tyres had blown as he tried to drive a car he had borrowed to his own house.
Police saw Glaister in Thurgoona Drive about 11.20pm on October 12. The car had no tail lights and both back tyres were flat.
He accelerated along several streets before being cornered in a dead end street.
Magistrate Tony Murray was told yesterday one tyre was devoid of tread with wire exposed.
Glaister, 19, of Corby Close, Thurgoona, pleaded guilty in Albury Local Court to a charge of dangerous driving.
He was fined $700, disqualified for 14 months and surrendered his licence in court.
