An erratic driver has been arrested after a dramatic police chase in Bacchus Marsh this morning.

Police allegedly began pursuing the Holden Ute after it was spotted driving erratically near Fisken Street.

Bacchus Marsh Police Sergeant Glenn Saw said the vehicle had been known to police in Melton for the last week.

He said police members followed the driver, who travelled down Main Street, into Gisborne Road and onto Holts Lane, weaving in and out of traffic.

Police deployed stop sticks and the driver was intercepted and arrested on Holts Lane.

Sergeant Saw said the driver evaded police for around five-minutes.
