A man has attempted to run from police after they attempted to pull him over early Sunday morning for speeding.
The 20-year-old man was flashed by police on Middleton Avenue around 3.20am.
He refused to stop and continued driving into Heath Crescent before fleeing on foot.
Upon capture and observing his behaviour, officers took him to Griffith Base Hospital for blood and urine testing.
He was charged with driving whilst disqualified, exceeding the speed limit, with possible charges after the results of the sobriety tests return.
Police are looking for the owner of a car that was found burning at Lake Wyangan on Sunday morning.

The fire also took out around 200 square meters of scrub-land.
The car has not been reported stolen or missing, and police believe it may have been used as a farm vehicle.
There were no number plates found.

At 4:03am on Sunday morning, Fire and Rescue crews were called to a fire near a railway line.
The fire had ignited in a large mound of grass clippings from a nearby residence.
