Stingers used in 180km/h police chase

A 23-year-old man is facing a string of traffic charges after an alleged chase reached speeds of more than 180kmh south of Perth last night.

Police will allege they tried to stop a Holden Statesman travelling at speed on Baldivis Road near Makybe Drive, Baldivis.

A police spokeswoman said the chase was temporarily aborted on Ennis Avenue in Warnbro when the driver reached 180kmh.

Stingers were deployed on Mandurah Road in an attempt to deflate the tyres, but the man allegedly continued driving the car on its rims.

He was eventually stopped and arrested on Old Coast Road, near Princeton Drive, in Wannanup.

The 23-year-old's charges include reckless driving, failing to stop and no authority to drive.

He is due to appear in the Mandurah Magistrate's Court this morning.
