The Irish Times is reporting that A Dublin man has been sentenced to four years in jail after he led Gardaí on a high speed chase.

The man in question reversed into a garda sergeant and was in possession of a large quantity of drugs at the time in a chase that reached speeds of up to 210km/h. 

The Drimnagh native said he was suffering from “intense levels of fear and paranoia” and was described as a good family man who would not reoffend. 

In his possession, he had a total value of drugs of around €109,000.

Several Garda cars were involved in the high speed chase which started at Rathcoole and ended up in a residential area in Drimnagh. 

The man in question broke several red lights and was caught speeding nearly four times over the limit in a 60km/h zone. 

It was said that he narrowly missed collisions and forced other cars to pull up so he could get past.  

The court heard that Dunne had a strong work history and had since rehabilitated himself and was drug-free.
