Johannesburg - A Maserati driver was arrested in Johannesburg on Sunday afternoon following a high speed chase involving a number of law enforcement vehicles, metro police said.

"A 32-year old man from Lyndhurst in Johannesburg with a Maserati sports car got arrested today [Sunday] at about 14:30 after a high speed chase on Johannesburg's freeways," spokesperson Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said.

"JMPD officers first saw him on the N12 as he wove from lane to lane forcing cars in front if him to give way. They tried to stop on M1 north at Booysens off-ramp but he accelerated instead, as six metro police cars chased behind him."

He exited the M2 Selby off-ramp and joined the M2 west, but the chase ended on the M2 east on-ramp from Main Reef Road, where the man was boxed in next to a slow moving truck.

"He will soon appear in the Orlando Magistrate's Court in Soweto for reckless and negligent driving, as well as for failing to stop for officers in uniform", Minnaar said.
