A schizophrenic trans woman from Victoria drunkenly drove through the streets of Devonport chasing an ambulance and causing paramedics to think they were going to cause a "serious accident". Robert Nathan Allen was 33 years old and identified as female during the incident that lasted more than two hours in November last year, the Supreme Court in Burnie heard on Thursday, December 7. Allen pleaded guilty to a charge of dangerous driving for a range of offences, which Crown prosecutor Madeleine Kellow said endangered a number of people. Ms Kellow told the court Allen's driving crimes began at the Vietnam War Memorial on Victoria Parade when they skidded into a car park before suddenly reversing out, causing the wheels of the blue Toyota Camry to spin. She said Allen then drove dangerously through the city, swerving across both lanes of traffic and causing other cars to swerve to avoid collisions, with their head out the window "yelling and screaming" at other road users. On Formby Road they allowed an ambulance driving under lights and sirens to pass them, before following it through multiple red lights, causing the paramedics to stop thinking the driver needed assistance. Ms Kellow said Allen then drove straight past the stopped ambulance, which then continued on to its initial emergency, before Allen turned around and began following it again. "Paramedics contacted police, as they believed he was going to cause a serious accident," Ms Kellow said. Eventually Allen stopped following the ambulance and continued driving dangerously on the Bass Highway, video of which showing their car swerving across both westbound lanes of the Bass Highway was played to the court. The court heard that after being arrested they refused a breath test, but said they had been drinking, and then spent a total of 322 days in custody, including time at a "high dependency" mental health facility. Defence lawyer Callum Purcell told the court Allen had schizophrenia and prior to this incident was undergoing hormone treatment for gender dysphoria and then identified as female, but now identified as male. Mr Purcell said the hormone treatment had an adverse affect on Allen's mental health, which Justice Jago agreed was linked in to the offending. However, Justice Jago said Allen's mental health was just one factor "among many" that needed to be taken into account. Sentencing was adjourned to December 14, and Allen was remanded in custody.
