Man charged after wild police chase through northern suburbs
A 35-year-old man has been charged following a wild police chase through several northern suburbs overnight.
Police say they tried to pull over a Kia Sorrento on Morley Drive in Yokine after it went through a red light.
The driver then allegedly led officers on a winding chase through a number of suburbs from from North Perth to Ballajura.
The car eventually came to a stop on Wanneroo Road in Nollamara, after police deployed a tyre deflation device.
Police say the man fled on foot but was arrested shortly after.
He’s facing a string of offences, including failing to stop, reckless driving, no authority to drive and obstructing a public officer.
The Cooloongup man is expected to face Perth Magistrates Court today.
