An unlicensed driver has been charged after he ran a red light in a homemade convertible right in front of police in the Adelaide suburb of Glenelg.
Police said they were patrolling Jetty Road just before 1:00am today when the occupants of a white car yelled out at them before the car ran a red light.
The car was pulled over on Douglas Grove in Glenelg North.
Checks revealed the driver’s licence had been expired for six years and that he was on bail with the condition that he would not drive.
When police inspected the car, they realised it was a standard Hyundai Excel that the owner had cut the roof off to make it look like a convertible.
There was also considerable damage on the back of the car from a crash.
The driver, a 25-year-old man from Elizabeth Downs was arrested and charged with driving unlicensed, failing to stop at a red light, breach of bail and for breaching vehicle standards.
He was bailed to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on July 13.
The car was defected and towed away.
