Hutt Valley: Car Chase last night ends in arrests

leave a comment »

Well there was a lot of drama last night as noted from Twitter over Police cars moving at high speed.

It started with a police chase through the streets of Wellington and ended in the Hutt Valley with five arrests.

The chase began late last night in central Wellington, when an officer on foot patrol tried to get the driver to pull over on Tory Street, but the driver ignored him, and sped off down Aotea Quay. A police patrol gave chase, but had to abandon the pursuit because of the number of pedestrians leaving the AC/DC concert outside Westpac Stadium.

The offender drove onto the motorway, and sped towards the Hutt Valley, where he exited at the Petone off-ramp. Police say officers rejoined the pursuit at this point, and continued through the streets of Petone and Lower Hutt.

It eventually ended in Manor Park where the five male occupants of the vehicle were arrested. The driver is likely to face charges of dangerous driving, failing to stop and excess breath alcohol.
