Crash man in jail

September 15, 2017

Shepparton Magistrate's Court yesterday handed a one-month jail sentence to man for driving offences and assaulting police officers.

A man will spend the next month behind bars after he allegedly crashed into a fish and chip shop at Strathmerton.

Bradley Slade, 40, of no fixed address, faced Shepparton Magistrates’ Court yesterday for the second time after his arrest earlier this week.

The accused was allegedly driving through the town of Strathmerton on Monday night when he veered to the wrong side of the road.

Police reports claimed that a driver had to take quick evasive action to avoid a collision, before Slade’s vehicle allegedly crashed into the shop at the corner of Main and Maguire Sts about 6pm.

After police arrived at the scene, he allegedly refused a breath test and spat at officers.

He was arrested and remanded in custody to appear in court for a bail application yesterday.

But at the last minute, the bail application was abandoned, and the accused was remanded in custody to appear in court on October 20.

The 40-year-old will face charges of driving in a dangerous manner, refusing a breath test, unlicensed driving, refusing to state his name to police, as well as two counts of assaulting police officers.
