A 49-year-old driver, wearing only his underwear, has been arrested after taking police on a dangerous chase through Perth’s southern suburbs.
Police say they spotted a stolen Ford Futura sedan driving along McNeece Place in O’Connor at about 1am this morning and switched on their emergency lights and sirens to pull the car over.
But the vehicle allegedly sped away, sparking a police chase through a number of suburbs.
It is alleged the vehicle, which had no headlights on, was driven down the wrong side of the road and through a number of red lights and stop signs.
Police air wing were called in to help track the car from the air, while officers pursued the vehicle on the ground.
The car finally came to a stop on North Lake Road in Kardinya, where the scantily clad driver was arrested and given clothing to put on, before being taken to Fremantle Police Station.
The Willagee man has been charged with a number offences including steal motor vehicle, reckless driving and breach of bail undertaking.
He was refused bail and is due to appear in Fremantle Magistrate’s Court today.
