Burnout accused attacks media
Mon, 18 Jun 2012 12:02p.m.
One of the men charged with doing burnouts at an Upper Hutt funeral has lost control with media outside court.
After the group appeared in Upper Hutt District Court this morning, one of the men chased a Dominion Post photographer and then lunged at a 3 News camera.
The men, aged between 18 and 27, face charges of dangerous driving and loss of traction after burnouts were done at the end of a funeral in March.
At the time Hutt Valley area commander Insp Mike Hill said the men placed the public at risk, and the police will not tolerate illegal street racers in the community.
“Holding a driver's license does not make anyone an expert driver able to defy the laws of physics,” Mr Hill said. “We do not want any needless deaths or injuries on our roads.”
The men had their vehicles impounded for 28 days after the incident.
All four men were remanded on bail to reappear next month.

Way to go, pinheads !!!!
Already charged with doing burnouts, go and commit and act of assault outside the court against a reporter where the chances of it being recorded is very high.
Clearly these 4 morons were at the back of the queue when brains were being handed out.

I am from Upper Hutt, and I'm the same age as the people in the video. However, I find the whole situation and the behaviour shown outside the court room to be embarissing and degrading. These people need to grow up, get some respect for others and join the real world!
