A man accused of throwing rocks at cars during an alleged 26km rampage on Bussell Highway and Caves Road in November appeared in court on Tuesday.

Clive Andrew Sheridan appeared in Busselton Magistrate’s Court via video link from Graylands Hospital charged with 28 counts of criminal damage or destruction of property, 26 counts of with intent to harm, omitted to do any act that it was the person’s duty to do or did any act as a result of which the life, health or safety of any person was or was likely to be endangered, one count of refusing to provide a blood sample for analysis, and one count of dangerous driving.

Mr Sheridan said he intended to plead guilty and refused legal aid despite recommendations from his social worker.

Police allege that at about 9.15am on November 2, a gold-coloured Subaru station wagon was being driven erratically while the driver threw rocks at passing vehicles.

The attacks allegedly left a trail of destruction including smashed windscreens and shattered headlights.

The matter was adjourned until April 14 for a fitness to plead report.
