Police found a woman hiding in a pharmacy at Westfield Belconnen after she allegedly failed to stop for them, crashed into a steel fence and ran from her car.
Tahlyia Helen Florence Hunter, 22, was granted bail when she appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
She was charged with seven offences in relation to an incident that happened on Sunday afternoon. She has not entered pleas.
Documents tendered to the court said police had been patrolling in Belconnen about 12.15pm on Sunday when they tried to stop a gold Holden Commodore in Luxton Street.
The car did not stop and shortly afterwards it narrowly avoided hitting two other vehicles and crashed into a traffic island, deflating the front tyres.
After crossing onto the incorrect side of Benjamin Way, the car crashed into a steel fence separating the entry and exit driveways at Westfield Belconnen.
The police allegations said Ms Hunter and a male passenger ran from the car in different directions.
After a short chase on foot, police found Ms Hunter trying to hide in the Guardian Pharmacy at the shopping centre.
She allegedly returned a positive drug test and told police that afternoon that she had used ice and heroin earlier in the day.
Ms Hunter also told police, according to their allegations, that she had only bought the car about half-an-hour before they attempted to pull her over.
She had not stopped because she did not have a licence.
She was charged with drug-driving, failing to stop for police, driving without ever holding a licence, dangerous driving, using an unregistered and uninsured vehicle, and using a number plate issued to another vehicle.
Prosecutor Kate Reardon opposed bail, saying she was not confident Ms Hunter would comply with court orders given she was already on bail for serious, unrelated charges at the time of Sunday's incident.
Magistrate James Lawton told Ms Hunter he was prepared to grant her conditional bail one more time, but warned her she needed to address her issues with drugs or risk being locked up long-term.
Ms Hunter is due to appear in court again on November 27.
