Man Arrested After Police Chase through Port Wakefield


A 58-year-old man has been arrested following a police chase through Port Wakefield at the weekend.

Police attempted to stop the vehicle when he was driving erratically on Florence Street, but he sped off. 

The car mounted a median strip and narrowly avoided a collision with another vehicle on the Augusta Highway before stopping on White Street.

The Wolseley man was charged with engaging in a police pursuit, driving in a dangerous manner and refusing to submit to an alcotest. 

He was issued a twelve-month immediate loss of license and has been bailed to attend Kadina Magistrates Court in November.
