However, he eventually returned to it and was promptly arrested by police at the scene.

Stomp understands that when the police arrived, the car had been abandoned and that the driver had allegedly asked his brother to cover for him.

In response to a Stomp media query, a police spokesman said that the police were alerted to the incident at 1.03am.

"No injuries were reported," said the spokesman.
