A man has been arrested on the NSW central coast after he tried to evade NSW Police by jumping into a lake.
The 33-year-old, who was wanted on outstanding warrants, ran from a home in Mannering Park on Wednesday morning and jumped over a back fence.
He then jumped into the waters of Lake Macquarie and was pursued by police who, with the help of PolAir, arrested him.
Police allegedly seized more than $1100 in cash and methylamphetamine from the man.
He faces charges of destroying or damaging property with intent to endanger life, possessing a prohibited drug, aggravated robbery and inflicting actual bodily harm and was refused bail to appear at Wyong Local Court on Thursday.
