An Ipswich man has denied dangerous driving in a jeep and failing to stop for police following an incident on the outskirts of the town centre.
Timay Denton, 28, of Pauline Street, appeared before South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court accused of five offences.
In addition to dangerous driving and failing to stop, Denton also pleaded not guilty to driving otherwise in accordance with a licence and without insurance.
He is also accused of possession of heroin in Norwich on November 26. Denton, who appeared via a video link from Martlesham police investigation centre, did not enter a plea to this charge.
All the motoring matters are alleged to have occurred at around 7.40pm last Thursday.
