A Weston man out on bail has been arrested after allegedly taking a stolen dirt bike on a joyride through the streets of Lambton.
He was first spotted on Turton Street around 12:29am, riding the bike erratically and at high speed without the lights on.
The 24-year-old ended up crashing into a police car, before officers later found a replica gun in his backpack.
Checks later revealing the bike was stolen from Beresfield two days ago.
He's now off to Newcastle Local Court today on six charges.
