Arrests after police chase near Dunedin

Two people have been arrested following a police chase north of Dunedin this morning.

Police indicated for the driver to pull over on State Highway 1 near Karitane about 8.25am after they were spotted speeding, a police spokeswoman said.

The motorist continued south towards Dunedin.

''[The car] fled police,'' she said.

''It drove around spikes ... and eventually stopped on the Kilmog.''

It was unclear what led to the motorist pulling over, but it was of their own volition.

''The driver was taken into custody without incident. It appears he had a warrant to arrest outstanding.''

A passenger in the vehicle was also arrested.
