Police facts tendered to the court told how police were patrolling Alamein Walk in West Bathurst on Monday, June 3 when they noticed Frame driving. Police say Frame looked at the police vehicle and attempted to hide his face with his forearm.
Police did a U-turn and followed Frame, who turned left into Larson Street and accelerated harshly. Police activated all warning devices on their vehicle and started to catch up with Frame.
At the intersection of Rocket Street, Frame turned right and accelerated harshly to a speed of more than 100 kilometres an hour, according to the police facts. Police began a pursuit which went for 150m and which they ended at the intersection of Dunrossil Crescent.
Soon after, police attended Frame's home in Moresby Way, where they spoke to his mother.
She said her son was not home and was in Penrith. She provided police with her mobile to call Frame, but Frame's mobile phone appeared to be turned off.
On June 4, police attended Moresby Way and spoke to Frame, who denied he was driving and told police he'd sold the ute.
He told police he was with someone on the day of the pursuit. The person he said he was with said they were in Forbes delivering trusses, which contradicted Frame's mother's claims.
When Frame was told by police he was under arrest for the pursuit, he refused to open the screen door he was standing behind.
When police forced open the door, he jumped from a rear window of the house into the backyard before jumping several fences through neighbouring yards.
