This time, officers gave chase after the driver again allegedly failed to stop. Police pursued the vehicle to a caravan park at Moonee Beach where it stopped and the man attempted to flee on foot.

The 24-year-old was arrested nearby however and found to be in possession of a knife.

He was taken to Coffs Harbour Police Station where he was charged with a number of offences including police pursuit (not stop), possession of a knife in a public place and possession of ammunition.

The man was refused bail to appear at Coffs Harbour Local Court today.
