An 18-year-old man was later arrested by police after stopping the car in the middle of the road.
He was taken to Inverell Police Station and charged with drive in a speed/manner dangerous to the public, police pursuit - not stop (Skye's Law), drive unregistered vehicle, drive uninsured vehicle and larceny.
The man was refused bail to appear in Inverell Local Court today (where it is expected Queensland Police will seek his extradition on warrants for property, stealing and traffic offences.
