A thug who drives PORSCHE used images of police officers filmed dying after an accident in an insurance claim for damage to his car, a court has been told.
Cops say Richard Pusey, 44, sent pictures of the seriously injured officers he mocked as they lay dying in a complaint after his insurance company rejected his £1.3million bid for a payout.
Dubbed “Australia’s most hated man” after filming himself mocking dying police officers as they were crushed under a truck, he was sentenced to 10 months in prison for outrage on public decency.
Pusey had passed them for driving his Porsche at 93mph in Melbourne.
The mortgage broker said “that’s amazing” and “that’s bloody justice” while recording the video.
Pusey – who now identifies a non-binary and uses she/them pronouns – has now appeared in court accused of uploading four graphic images from the 2020 crash.
The Sunshine Magistrate’s Court heard Pusey allegedly posted graphic images of the officers online during two separate complaints related to the damage to the Porsche, news.com.au reports.
Pusey complained to the Australian Financial Complaints Authority that he was unable to get an insurance payment for the damage caused to the car because “nobody wants to own the claim”.
“A truck mowed down four road safety heroes … it wrecked a black Porsche and now these c***s won’t pay,” Pusey wrote.
The court heard Pusey was also seeking £1.3million in damages for the trauma of seeing the police officers violently killed in the crash.
Harry Ganavas, AFCA senior executive overseeing the lawsuit, told the court the images allegedly accompanying the lawsuit were irrelevant and Pusey’s description of the events left him “full of disgust.”
“I actually felt repelled and physically ill looking at the photos,” he said.
Police Prosecutor Anthony Albore told the court one of the images submitted did not even show the damage done to the Porsche.
The claim “inappropriate and disrespectful” was dismissed.
The court heard that Pusey had also written a Google one-star review of the Porsche Center Melbourne, criticizing the company’s insurance policy and customer service.
An investigating police officer told the court that the accused had used a descriptive photo of one of the bleeding police officers on the roof of the Porsche for his profile picture.
The officer said she was “angry and outraged” when she saw the horrifying picture of the deadly tragedy.
Mr Albore claimed an Instagram account called “The Richard Pusey Show” included the damage to the Porsche, which could have been used for the complaints.
But the Porsche driver told the court prosecutors were telling “a story” and denied the charges.
Officers were debating whether to impound the car when a truck being driven by Mohinder Singh crashed into them.
He only escaped the accident by urinating on the side of the road.
