Man charged after Melksham car chase and arrest
A man was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving and dangerous driving on Tues-day, following a police chase through Melksham.
A stolen Vauxhall Zafira was spotted on the A420 in Chippenham at 8.53am by an automatic number plate recognition camera, and the Wiltshire Police helicopter assisted in tracking the car as it travelled into Melksham.
The driver failed to stop for officers at the Countywide roundabout and headed toward Avon Tires, before abandoning the car by Victoria Motors in Old Broughton Road. Officers continued on foot and arrested a man at 9.25am.
He was taken into custody at Melksham but has since been transferred to Avon and Somerset Police.
Mick Caple, 20, from Filton, South Gloucestershire, has been charged with driving dangerously and while disqualified, burglary and theft.
