A Broome man has been refused bail after allegedly using his car to drag a police officer along the street in a bid to avoid being arrested. Ka Fai George Chan appeared in Broome Magistrate’s Court via videolink from Casuarina Prison today to face several traffic and drug related charges. The court heard the 29-year-old was allegedly driving a Ford Focus near Napier Terrace in Broome in the early hours of December 12 last year when police signalled for him to pull over. But rather than stop it is alleged Mr Chan sped off, rocketing along at 140km/h in a 50km/h zone, before swerving onto a footpath and coming to an abrupt halt when he crashed into a crosswalk bollard. And when police caught up with Mr Chan and tried to arrest him, he is alleged to have driven off with one officer still clinging to the car. The officer was dragged along the street for 25m, at a speed of about 15km/h, before falling off and rolling along the road, suffering abrasions to his arms, legs and back as a result. Mr Chan is alleged to have continued on to Walcott Street where he drove onto the middle of the road before stopping. Police were then able to catch up with him and finally take him into custody. Mr Chan’s lawyer, Ted Wilkinson, applied for bail to allow his client to live with his father and take care of his family.. But Magistrate Elizabeth Langdon refused the request due to the “serious set of circumstances alleged” against Mr Chan and her concerns over his risk of reoffending. Mr Chan will next appear on February 24 for a committal mention.
