A 49-year-old man was arrested for suspected drug-related offences, driving without a valid licence and other traffic-related offences after a police chase from the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) to Old Choa Chu Kang Road on Tuesday afternoon (Apr 7).

Stomper Adi alerted Stomp to the incident and shared a video and photos of the driver being handcuffed.

"I was outside the Home Team Academy, waiting for my son to book out, when I saw around 10 Traffic Police and highway patrol vehicles zooming past and chasing after a black car.

"The black car ended up on the opposite side of the road after mounting the kerb and hitting a lamp post.

"The male driver was subsequently handcuffed by the police."

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were performing patrol duties at about 4.26pm along the PIE towards the Kranji Expressway (KJE) when they decided to conduct a check on a driver of a car.

When the police signalled for the driver to stop his vehicle, he refused to comply with the officer's instruction to stop and sped off instead, a police spokesman said.

In the ensuing pursuit, the same car was involved in an accident along Old Choa Chu Kang Road towards Sungei Tengah Road.

No injuries were reported.

"He was subsequently arrested for suspected drug-related offences, driving without a valid license and other traffic-related offences," the police said.

Investigations are ongoing.
