A Lavington man has been found guilty of using his car as a weapon to avoid arrest.
The decision against Trevor Barrett, 20, was handed down on Thursday by Albury Local Court magistrate Rodney Brender.
Barrett had contested the charge of using an offensive weapon to prevent lawful detention at a recent hearing.

Mr Brender said Barrett fled police at high speed across Albury on December 6.
At one point, his stationary car was was approached in Glenelg Drive, Springdale Heights, by Wodonga officers involved in the cross-border operation.
But Barrett, then 19, took off, albeit at low speed, causing a collision.
Mr Brender said there was no doubt Barrett knew they were police as their car had several antennas, he had slumped down in his seat to avoid detection and knew there were "numerous" police vehicles in the area.
Barrett will be sentenced on this and other charges stemming from the pursuit, to which he pleaded guilty, on a date to be fixed.
