Chase sparked in Surfers Paradise

THERE has been a dramatic chase beginning in busy Surfers Paradise.

Police pulled a man over on Cavill Avenue at 7:40 PM on Sunday night.

He was told to turn off the engine but refused and sped off, forcing Officers to leap out of the way.


He collided with four rickshaws which in turn hit a Police Car.

Polair was called in to keep an eye on the driver’s movements.  Tyre spikes were laid out on Beenleigh Beaudesert Road at Mundoolun which punctured the car’s tyres.

The man continued on a bit further before giving up and running off.  The dog squad helped with his capture at around 8:30 PM.

He faces a host of charges including dangerous operation, driving without a licence, obstruct police, use of a mobile phone and breach bail conditions.
