A Napier teen is facing charges after a police chase that allegedly reached speeds of up to 185km/h.
Police say they saw the 18-year-old man's vehicle speeding along Swamp Road, near Napier, shortly after midnight last night.
The driver allegedly failed to stop and led police on an eight-minute pursuit that ended when the driver pulled over at the Napier golf course.
Police say the teen's vehicle has been impounded and his licence suspended.
He will appear in Hastings District Court next week charged with reckless driving, driving at a dangerous speed, failing to stop for police, and resisting arrest.
