Back in court hours after bail on dangerous driving charge

A TEENAGER who allegedly drove while disqualified - hours after being granted bail on a dangerous driving charge - will appear in court on Wednesday morning.

Kodi Ned Brown, 17, was arrested on Monday night, released from the watchhouse, arrested again and then denied bail in Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on Tuesday morning.

Brown is alleged to have sped away from a police patrol about 10.50pm on Monday, driving on the wrong side of the road without headlights on.

Police inquiries into the Holden Commodore involved led to Brown's arrest.

After he was charged with dangerous driving and failing to stop for police, and then released, Brown was later allegedly caught driving again in the early hours of Tuesday.

Both times Brown is alleged to have been driving while his licence was disqualified by a court order.

Police prosecutor Senior Constable Nicole Kunkel said Brown's charges were of grave concern, particularly driving while disqualified on the same night as he was granted bail.

"He hasn't done himself any favours," agreed Brown's solicitor Justin Geldard.

Magistrate Graeme Tatnell adjourned the case till Wednesday.

Brown will remain behind bars until another bail application can be made this morning.

"It should give you a bit of further time to think about things," Mr Tatnell told Brown.
