A man who allegedly pointed a gun at a police officer in Auckland on Thursday will appear in court today.

Hayden Rizvi, 25, was arrested in the toilets of a fast-food store on Manukau Rd yesterday afternoon.

He'd been on the run since Wednesday, with police saying he fled in a stolen car during an incident in which a gun was pointed at the face of an officer.

He will appear in the Auckland District Court, charged with using a firearm against a law enforcement officer and a range of driving charges.

There were 15 warrants for his arrest outstanding over a range of serious offences.
