Carrum Downs man arrested after police pursuit

A 25-YEAR-OLD man will be charged with several traffic and criminal offences after a police pursuit in Bendigo on Friday night. 

Bendigo Highway Patrol Senior Constable Rachel Colliver said the Carrum Downs man would be charged with driving an unregistered vehicle, driving unlicensed, evading police, refusing a breath test and other offences. 

Senior Constable Colliver said police followed the driver south along Napier Street after being alerted to the man's erratic driving behaviour about 7.40pm, but called off the pursuit after about a minute. 

She said police arrested the man a short time later in Laurel Street, Golden Square.

He was taken to the police station, where he is being interviewed.  

Senior Constable Colliver said it was lucky no one was injured during the pursuit.
