During a search of the vehicle, police seized two firearms and weapons including a baton and baseball bat which will undergo forensic examination.

Upon release from hospital, the woman was taken to Gosford Police Station and charged with not stopping during a police pursuit, driving drive recklessly and driving a motor vehicle during a disqualification period.

She was refused bail to appear before Newcastle Bail Court on January 16.
