A man arrested after a stolen Holden Commodore crashed in Lavington has reacted angrily to being refused bail.
Alexander Brian McLeod, 44, was taken into custody by heavily armed police on Tuesday.
He was charged with being carried in a stolen car, over an incident last Thursday in which the Commodore crashed on Kaylock Road.
A 30-year-old man was also charged and will appear before Albury Court on Friday.
McLeod appeared before the court yesterday via video-link and interjected during proceedings.
When he was told by court registrar Wendy Howard of her refusal of his application for bail, McLeod hit the interview room door and yelled to corrective services officers, "Open the f*****g door".
Prosecutor Sergeant Andrew Pike opposed bail, raising dangers to the community.
"A custodial sentence is a likely outcome for this matter, if the prosecution is successful," he said.
"It is a strong prosecution case, given the CCTV evidence and the fact that the accused has made in-part admissions (relating to the footage)."
Sergeant Pike said warrants were issued by police in 2018 and 2017 for McLeod with a jail term ending in May this year.
"The accused is subject to an intensive correction order for substantially similar, although worse offending ... it (the ICO) was in place at the time of this offending on the 15th of July," he said.
Sergeant Pike said the charge of be carried in conveyance "goes hand in hand" with past offences including driving recklessly and being involved in police pursuits.
"Although he wasn't the driver ... the car was involved in a crash. It's my submission there's an unacceptable risk he'll continue to be involved in offences of this nature," he said.
Defence lawyer Mitchell Irwin said it was primarily driving offences that led to McLeod's prison sentences.
"It is the case that he's recently finished an intensive correction order ... he's no longer subject to any orders at this date," he said.
Mr Irwin said if the 44-year-old is to defend the matter there is "the prospect of significant delay".
"That could result in time in custody that would be longer than whatever sentence he may receive if found guilty," he said.
"If this case was to be defended, the question would be knowledge."
Registrar Wendy Howard did not accept the conditions put forward for bail.
