A 22-YEAR-OLD man who Dubbo Local Court heard was released from prison on February 19, has been refused bail after police were forced to get their guns out to arrest him on the streets of Dubbo.
Derryam Grimes, of Culgoa Street in Bourke, pleaded guilty to driving dangerously and failing to stop when police initially pursued him on a Narromine street between 8.35am and 10am on Wednesday.
He pleaded not guilty to charges of knowingly driving a stolen car, not giving details to another driver he collided with while driving, driving in a dangerous manner and using an offensive weapon to prevent lawful detention.

In documents presented to the court, police alleged that after failing to stop for them and swerving into oncoming traffic in Narromine, Mr Grimes drove to Dubbo where he crashed into another car.
Police said they followed him through Wheelers Lane and onto Wingewarra, Fitzroy, Bultje, Darling and Macquarie Streets.
Eventually they stopped Mr Grimes on the corner of Fitzroy Street and Boundary Road, in a Ford Falcon they claimed was reported stolen from Bourke on April 1.
Police said when they searched the car they found a steak knife in the driver side door and a large hunting style knife in another part of the vehicle.
Police thanked community members who "assisted us with information as the incident unfolded".
The case returns to Dubbo Local Court on May 8.
