Disqualified driver's far-fetched excuse to Sydney cops

A serial offender's far-fetched attempt to deceive police over her identity has unsurprisingly failed, despite her best efforts to convince officers she was 24 years older than she actually is.

The 38-year-old has now been locked up pending a court appearance following a string of alleged road offences, NSW Police said on Thursday.

The woman was banned from driving for six months earlier this year however police say she was caught behind the wheel last Thursday.

When attempting to identify the driver, the woman used her mother's name, telling officers she was born in 1960.

Officers told the woman she did not appear to be in her sixties, to which she responded by saying she'd "had some work done".

"Police placed the female under arrest where she eventually provided her correct details and she was issued a court attendance notice," Traffic and Highway Patrol Command said.

Yet police say she was again spotted driving a vehicle shortly after, with police taking her to Mascot Police Station and giving her strict bail conditions not allowing her to drive.

Yet despite CCTV showing the woman holding her bail papers, she allegedly returned straight to her vehicle and drove off.

On Wednesday, police arrested the woman and she was charged with driving while disqualified, breach of bail, resisting arrest and assaulting police.

She was refused bail to front court at a later date.

Police often face bizarre responses to offences, whether it be that the driver is late for work, or like one Tasmanian driver, they were too busy thinking about dessert.
