A BALLARAT man who allegedly produced a gun in front of police and was then shot at has been refused bail this afternoon.
Kyle Peter Green, 25, appeared in the dock of Ballarat Magistrates Court where he applied for bail.
Detective Sergeant Craig Dooley gave evidence, reading aloud a lengthy summary of the alleged offending.
Detective Dooley said Green had led police on multiple high speed chases around Ballarat.
He said that on August 25 this year police approached Green driving a silver car following reports he was involved in domestic violence.
But Green sped away, Detective Dooley said, and the vehicle was later found crashed into a power pole.
He said police found a traffickable quantity of methylamphetamine inside, along with a set of scales, an ice smoking pipe and more than $3000 cash.
Police alleged that during another incident in Ballarat, Green began to put his hands up in the air as a sign of surrender to police, before raising a firearm towards a police officer.
Detective Dooley said the officer discharged his firearm towards Green, who then got into a car and quickly reversed.
Green, who was on parole at the time of the alleged offending, handed himself into police on September 6, flanked by his two lawyers.
Defence lawyer Mike Wardell said it was not certain that Green was driving the silver car before it crashed.
Green is facing 26 charges including reckless conduct endangering life, trafficking a drug of dependence and several driving offences.
Magistrate Peter Couzens refused Green's bail application, remanding him in custody to reappear in court on November 14.
