A wanted man accused of leading police on a number of pursuits, including a chase that ended when he allegedly rammed a ute into a stationary police car near Wagga, remains behind bars after facing court charged with multiple driving offences.
Simon Carberry, of Parkinson Crescent in Griffith, was arrested on Sunday after he allegedly ran from the scene of a crash at Gobbagombalin and had to be subdued.
