    A raft of charges have been pressed against a Christchurch man - after a police pursuit down the wrong side of a busy road this morning


    Police say they tried to pull over a car about 8.30 on Wainui Street - but the driver fled.

    Officers quickly abandoned the chase - before the car crashed into a parked vehicle on Middleton Road.

    The driver was arrested - and a search continues for a passenger who fled on foot.

    A police spokesperson says 29-year-old man has been charged with driving while disqualified, reckless driving, failing to stop, possessing an offensive weapon, possessing meth - and stealing the car.

    He'll appear in the Christchurch District Court this afternoon.
