A man who was caught on a police dash-cam crashing his motorbike during a high speed chase in western Sydney has escaped a jail sentence.
Matthew Robert Nesbitt, 36, appeared in Campbelltown Local Court today to face charges after leading police on a pursuit through Ruse in January.
He was filmed swerving through suburban streets at almost double the speed limit before his motorbike skidded across the road.
Nesbitt then got to his feet and ran into the bonnet of the police car as he tried to escape on foot.
He was given a $2000 fine, had his license suspended for two years and was handed an 18-month good behaviour bond.
"It's a very challenging situation and this court outcome is really an issue for the rider involved and hopefully the rider has learned a valuable lesson," Inspector Phil Brooks told Nine News.
Nesbitt, who was supported by his pregnant wife at court today, has previously been convicted of driving without a license and dangerous and negligent driving.
