The Kimberley teenager who allegedly charged at a pilot while being transferred to Banksia Hill has pleaded not guilty to all charges. The 17-year-old is currently facing over 40 charges after he allegedly led police on a wild, 40-minute chase through Broome on September 5. The pursuit came to an end when officers rammed the stolen vehicle in front of popular tourism hot spot, Streeters Jetty. It was later revealed the teen had been on bail at the time and was already facing charges relating to three aggravated burglaries and two vehicle thefts alleged to have occurred in Broome and Derby two months prior. The accused was then placed on a flight to Perth when he allegedly charged towards the pilot shortly after take-off. Several on-board correction officers restrained the teen and the plane was forced to return to Broome. Premier Mark McGowan addressed the incident shortly after, labelling the act as “disturbing”. “This sort of extreme behaviour is what we’re dealing with, and it’s completely and utterly unacceptable,” he said. Last month, the boy was transferred to the controversial unit 18 at Casuarina after he allegedly climbed onto the roof of Banksia Hill. McGowan seemingly referred to the teenager again when defending his Government’s move in sending juveniles to the adult security prison, saying the teenage detainees “tried to bring down a plane”. The 17-year-old appeared in Perth Children’s Court this month, pleading not guilty to all 42 charges, including reckless driving to escape pursuit by police and endangered the free and safe use of an aircraft. He is due to appear again on December 8.
