A MAN has spent the night behind bars after leading Police to the alleged armed robbery of a Southport service station.
Just after 8pm on Wednesday officers spotted a vehicle driving erratically on Bundall Road.
They attempted to stop the car, but it took off before allegedly colliding with two other vehicles near the intersection of High and North Streets.

Police say it then left the scene of the crash and headed west onto Smith Street. There, the man is accused of entering a service station and pointing a gun at staff before demanding cigarettes.
The male worker handed over the smokes and the alleged armed robber left the store but was confronted by Police.
The Labrador man, 28, was handcuffed and taken to the station where he was charged with armed robbery, along with other weapons and driving offences.
He will face Southport Magistrates Court today.
