A 25-year-old man was arrested by police for dangerous driving in Kowloon, Hong Kong on Wednesday.

At midnight, a police car fitted with the automatic number plate recognition system detected a suspect vehicle driving along Lung Cheung Road in Diamond Hill and chased it for three kilometers, news website HK01.com reported.

The driver of the suspect vehicle drove it to Wan Chiu Road in Kowloon Bay before hitting the police car and striking road signs and lamp posts. The suspect vehicle then rolled over before stopping.

The driver, who was later identified as a 25-year-old Pakistani man, and a 20-year-old Nepalese woman were trapped in the vehicle. When the man grabbed a hard object planning to break the car window, a senior police officer asked him to stop, but he failed to do so. As a precaution, the officer drew his gun and pointed it at the driver, who was later subdued, Apple Daily reported.

The female passenger was injured and two police officers felt unwell as a result of the collision. They were sent to hospital for medical treatment.

Officers seized traces of suspected illegal drugs and two fake car number plates from inside the car.

The suspect was subsequently arrested for allegedly driving without license, dangerous driving, driving without third party insurance, taking a conveyance without authority, using false instruments and possession of drugs.
