Queensland man charged with over 100 driving offences



A Queensland man has been charged with over 100 driving offences, all allegedly committed in under two weeks.

Last month, police intercepted Nathan Evans' Ford Falcon on Caleys Court at Lockrose.

There, they found that the car was allegedly defective, unregistered, uninsured and had been "linked to various active investigations into dangerous driving offences".

The 21-year-old's phone was seized by police, which later uncovered footage of the alleged offences as well as other vision of the man's hooning on social media.

Evans, from Lockyer Valley, was slapped with a total of 107 different charges relating to offences allegedly committed between February 7 and February 18 in the Darling Downs region.

The charges include: 23 counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, 25 counts each of unregistered vehicle, uninsured vehicle and defective vehicle, seven counts of supplying dangerous drugs and one count each of possessing anything used in the commission of a crime and driving while using a mobile phone.

Acting Senior Sergeant Damian van den Berg said Evans' behaviour seriously endangered the lives of the community.

"This result is an example of Queensland Police Service's dedication to ensuring our roadways are safe for all users," he said said.

"Intentionally driving an unsafe vehicle in a dangerous manner on public roads is not only putting the lives of the driver and passengers on the line, but innocent members of the public."

Evans is set to appear before Gatton Magistrates Court on April 24.
