A woman has been filmed spitting on a police officer after claiming she was on her way to get tested for COVID-19.
The 25-year-old woman allegedly failed to stop for police in Greenacre, southwest Sydney, on Friday afternoon, after driving at speeds exceeding 120km/h.
She is also accused of running a red light and overtaking a vehicle on unbroken lines.
The woman was pulled over by police at around 5pm but she allegedly refused to get out of her car.
Video footage of the shocking incident shows her being handcuffed by an officer before spitting in his face.
Police say the woman claimed she was on her way to get tested for coronavirus.

After spitting on the policeman the officer said: ‘Do not spit on me or I will put you on the ground.’
She demanded the officer let her speak to her lawyer and to let her go, but when he didn’t respond, she smashed her head against the back seat window.
The officer asked the woman if she understood why she was under arrest but she continued to protest and said she was on her way to the doctor.
She spat in the officer’s face a second time and he yelled ‘do not f***ing spit on me’ and slammed the woman onto the ground.
In response, the man who filmed the incident said ‘Don’t f***ing touch her.’
She was placed under arrested just after 5pm on Friday but resisted requests to get in the officer’s car and spat in his face twice
More police officers arrived on the scene and the woman was taken to Bankstown Police Station.
She was charged with drive recklessly/furiously or speed/manner dangerous, motor vehicle exceed speed more than 45 km/h, drive motor vehicle during disqualification period, and assault officer in execution of duty.
The woman did not display any coronavirus symptoms but the officer has been tested as a precaution.
Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander, Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy, said this kind of behaviour towards police officers, who are just trying to go about their job safely, is not acceptable.
‘Police will not tolerate being spat at in any climate, let alone the one we’re facing right now. It’s as simple as that,’ Assistant Commissioner Corboy said.
She was refused bail to appear at Parramatta Local Court today on Saturday.
