POLICE pursued a driver through Kelty, Cowdenbeath, along the A92, down the M90 and towards Inverkeithing.

Damir Furdic, from Dunfermline, ignore blue lights and sirens as he carried on his way until he was blocked by five police vehicles at the Ferrytoll slip road.

Before then, he had cut corners at speed, drove through a red traffic light and weaved about the road.

A police vehicle which had been brought over from Lothian to help in the chase rammed up against Furdic’s car, ending his joy ride.

Police dash-cam video of the incident was shown in court.

He then became abusive towards officers on the journey to the police station.

Furdic, 37, of McClelland Crescent, was found guilty after a trial at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

The charge was that on April 9 last year, at Loch Leven Terrace, Cocklaw Street, Station Road and Perth Road, all Kelty; the A909, Cowdenbeath High Street, the A92, the M90 and Ferrytoll, Inverkeithing, he drove a car dangerously and repeatedly at high speeds, well in excess of the limits.

He failed repeatedly to stop for a marked police vehicle, failed to stop for a red traffic light, drove on the wrong side of the carriageway repeatedly, overtook a police vehicle on the wrong side of the carriageway on a sharp bend, weaved across lanes, attempted to drive past another marked police vehicle and collided with it.

He had admitted another charge that on the same day, he shouted, swore and made homophobic comments repeatedly towards two police officers and struck them with his feet at Dunfermline police station.

Sheriff James MacDonald called for reports and imposed an interim driving ban until sentencing on December 19.
