WYMAH man Ashley Edwards was on strict bail for indictable charges with a curfew stipulating he had to be at home each night from 8pm to 6am.
But police saw Edwards at a house in Douglas Road at Lavington at 10.57pm on February 15 after receiving a noise complaint.
Edwards eluded officers by jumping fences and getting away in a stolen vehicle.
But a short time later, they saw the vehicle and pursued it at high speed along several streets before Edwards crashed into a fence and tree.
He made another bold escape bid, jumping fences, running through yards and hiding before eventually being arrested.
Edwards, 19, yesterday pleaded guilty in Albury Local Court to charges of failing to stop in a police pursuit, high-range drink-driving, car theft and unlicensed driving.
Magistrate Tony Murray was told Edwards had a learner’s motorcycle licence which was suspended and has never held a driver’s licence.
A breath analysis at the police station provided a reading of 0.17.
The Holden utility he was driving had been reported stolen on February 13 and was towed away after Edwards crashed in Kaitlers Road.
About 20 minutes after police saw Edwards at the Douglas Road residence, they saw the stolen vehicle being driven in Kemp Street.
Officers activated the lights and sirens on their vehicle and Edwards sped away reaching 90km/h in a 50km/h zone.
A pursuit was called by police and Edwards stopped his vehicle in Laramee Drive.
But as police approached, he accelerated away and lost control in Douglas Road sliding from side to side.
He was travelling about 110km/h in Webb Street as police unsuccessfully tried to catch up.
It was when Edwards tried to turn right into Kaitler’s Road that he lost control and hit a fence and tree.
He escaped from the vehicle and was chased through several yards as police set up a perimeter.
Police received information about him jumping fences in Conmurra Way and found him hiding in a backyard behind a shed about 12.35am on February 16.
Mr Murray ordered a pre-sentence report on Edwards and adjourned his sentencing until April 29.
He has other indictable charges adjourned until that date including two counts of aggravated break and enter and commit a serious offence.
