Man arrested for suspected offences, including drug use, after dramatic police car chase in CBD
A 32-year-old man was arrested for multiple offences, including suspected drug-related offences, after a police chase that resulted in his car colliding with two other cars and mounting a kerb on Thursday (Sept 24).
It started at about 11.50am, when police officers on patrol at an open space car park in Bayfront Avenue came across a car with a missing front bumper and approached the vehicle, the police said on Friday.
When asked by the officers to alight from the vehicle, the 32-year-old man in the driver’s seat ignored the request and sped off instead, which led to a car chase.
The pursuit came to a halt when the car mounted a kerb in Anson Road after colliding with a taxi and another passenger car.
The man then attempted to flee on foot, but was later arrested for driving under the influence of drugs, dangerous driving causing hurt and suspected drug-related offences.
