A Canberra man has been granted bail after he allegedly rode a dirt bike dangerously on suburban footpaths and fled from police who tried to stop him.
Travis George Bunker, 20, appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court on Monday, charged with eight offences including aggravated dangerous driving. He did not enter pleas.
The charges follow an incident on Sunday afternoon, when police say they were alerted to motorcycles travelling along green strips and pathways in Monash.
Officers arrived to allegedly find Mr Bunker riding an uninsured, unregistered dirt bike along footpaths without a helmet or a licence.
He allegedly failed to stop when directed, before being found and arrested at a nearby home a short time later.
On Monday, Magistrate James Lawton granted the 20-year-old bail with no opposition from prosecutors.
Mr Bunker is due back in court next month.
In a statement, ACT Policing said it was illegal to ride dirt bikes and quadbikes on public parkland, including ovals and greenbelts.
Anyone with footage or information of illegal or dangerous dirt bike riding was urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
