It is alleged that the driver failed to stop for patrols and the driver was arrested in the Poplar Avenue area, with the vehicle also being seized.

John Fishwick, 36, of Poplar Avenue, is set to appear before Wigan magistrates tomorrow, charged with disqualified driving, escaping from lawful custody, criminal damage and two charges of police assault.
