A South Coast man who allegedly led police on a high-speed chase on the Monaro Highway has also been charged with drug offences.
Police will allege the 23-year-old man from Benandarah, was seen about midday on Wednesday, June 19, travelling at 140km/h on the Snowy Mountains Highway at Morans Crossing.
A NSW Police spokesman said highway patrol officers attempted to get the driver to stop, but he didn't pull over.
Officers started a police chase on the highway, but stopped a short time later due to safety reasons.
Later the same day, the man was allegedly spotted by police driving on the Monaro Highway near Bombala, where a second police chase started but was again terminated.
After the driver was seen for a third time, driving westbound through Nimmitabel, police deployed road spikes on the Monaro Highway at Rock Police, forcing the driver to stop.
The man was arrested by officers and taken to Cooma District Hospital for blood and urine tests.
He was then taken to Cooma Police Station and charged with three counts of police pursuit, dangerous driving, possessing a prohibited drug and licence and registration offences.
A NSW Police spokesman said the man also had two outstanding arrest warrants, one of them related to a robbery.
The man was refused bail and will face Cooma Local Court on Thursday, June 20.
