AN Andergrove man has faced court after allegedly crashing a car and forcing a woman to drive him from the scene.

He appeared from the dock in custody.

He's been charged with two counts of unlawful use of a vehicle, deprivation of liberty, two counts of failing to stop a vehicle, four counts of driving without a licence, two counts of stealing, two counts of possessing tainted property, and one count of receiving tainted property.
