When Porsche driver Richard Pusey will make bail bid on stalking charges


Notorious Porsche driver Richard Pusey will make an application for bail next month after he was arrested in September charged with stalking and assaulting police.

The 43-year-old appeared briefly in the Neighbourhood Justice Centre on Tuesday where his lawyer Philip Dunn QC said he would make a bail bid on November 11.

He was only free from jail for three weeks after being released after he was sentenced to 10 months jail for his acts following the Eastern Freeway crash, and 120 days for other minor charges.

The former mortgage broker shocked the community when, in the aftermath of the crash on April 22, 2020, he filmed four dying police officers and made offensive comments while walking around the bloody scene.

Lynette Taylor, Glen Humphris, Kevin King and Joshua Prestney died when an ice-addled truck driver ploughed into the emergency lane of the Eastern Freeway at Kew, where the officers were standing after pulling over Pusey for speeding.

“That is f***ing justice … That is f***ing amazing,” Pusey said.

He described one of the dead officers as being “smashed” and said “you f***ing c***s, you c***s, I guess I’ll be getting a f***ing Uber home, huh”.

Other witnesses at the scene implored Pusey to help but instead he shrugged and said: “They’re dead”.

He is back in jail on remand after he was hit with fresh charges of four counts of assault police, two counts of stalking, and two counts of committing an offence while on bail on September 15.

Police allege Pusey harassed another Fitzroy resident by discarding “cat litter, faeces, and other food items” in and around their property.

He was also allegedly “keeping the victim under surveillance” using CCTV cameras.

He had the intention of “causing physical and mental harm to the victim, including self-harm, or of arousing apprehension and fear” between May 2020 and September, police allege.
