Two people have been arrested after police were alerted to "dangerous driving" reports in Southland.
Officers were first alerted at around 7am on Wednesday when the pair were travelling on State Highway 1 near Waihola, a town between Dunedin and Milton in Otago.
Police said they followed the vehicle but had to stop due to "safety concerns".
"Police continued to observe the vehicle from a distance, police set up to stop the vehicle over the Mataura Bridge, the vehicle was spiked and the driver was taken into custody," a police spokesperson told Newshub on Thursday.
In a video posted to social media, the driver is seen overtaking at least one car before it tucks in behind another car. The driver then drives onto a grassed area near the entry of a roundabout just after the Mataura Bridge and officers swarm the car.
An officer is seen opening the car door and pulling the man out to arrest him.
Two other police officers run to the other side of the car where they pull another person out of the vehicle and put them in handcuffs.
Police said a 27-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman were arrested and taken into custody at around 8:10am on Wednesday.
Both the man and the woman will reappear in the Invercargill District Court.
The 27-year-old is set to appear in the District Court on March 27 on driving-related charges and receiving property over $1000.
Police said the 31-year-old is due to appear in the District Court on April 4 and faces charges of "unlawfully" getting into a vehicle and receiving property under $500.
