A quick trip to drop his children off at an Easter egg hunt has ended with a man flipping his ute on to the roof while trying to do "circle work".
Police prosecutor Sergeant Andrew Pike said Blake Anthony Boyd's hoon driving was a clear failure.
"He tried a burnout and the car rolled over," Sergeant Pike has told Albury Local Court magistrate Richard Funston.

The 23-year-old, who represented himself in court, said he wanted to explain what had happened.
Boyd told the court he was "just taking the kids down to the park" near his home for the Easter egg hunt.
"I should've just walked down with them," he said.
Mr Funston found himself agreeing, though with a stern rebuke.
"Seriously, it's like juvenile behaviour, you know that," he said.
"What was going to be a nice day with the kids on the Easter egg hunt has ended like this."
He agreed, telling Mr Funston that what he did was "a mess".
Boyd, of Keene Street, East Albury, pleaded guilty to charges of negligent driving and driving while licence cancelled.
Police told the court how Boyd got into his Holden sedan with his children on April 4 about 1.40pm.
He drove the car along the grassed verge between Short Street and the Hume Freeway.
Police said Boyd began to do "circle work" in his ute, but lost control and felt the vehicle begin to roll.
His actions left marks all over the grassed area.
Boyd escaped injury.
Police checks revealed that Boyd's licence had been suspended from February 19 to May 18 over demerit points.
Mr Funston fined Boyd $800 and disqualified his licence for three months.
