Man allegedly threw bottles, spat at police in wild chase

A man remains in hospital after an alleged high-speed chase through Deception Bay early this morning.

The 27-year-old was allegedly seen by police exiting a vehicle on Quarry Road before getting into a stolen BMW X3 and driving it to the back of a property.

As the BMW was exiting the driveway of the properly, police tried to stop the vehicle with a tyre deflation device.

The vehicle allegedly continued to travel onto King Street where attempts to intercept the car were made.

The BMW evaded police, allegedly continuing to speed past the Caboolture Police Station before police deployed a second tyre deflation device.

The vehicle allegedly managed to evade police again, approaching the intersection of Morayfield Road where it continued travelling down the wrong side of the road, heading towards the roundabout on Uhlman Road before speeding over the Bruce Highway overpass.

The driver then allegedly began throwing glass bottles out the window of the BMW towards police, before losing control, crashing into a barrier.

The man allegedly spat on two police officers as he was removed from the vehicle and arrested.

He allegedly began kicking out the rear right window of the police vehicle while being transported to the Pine Rivers Watchhouse.

As he arrived at the watch-house, the man became unconscious.

He was transported to the Prince Charles Hospital where he remains under police guard.

Police investigations are continuing.
