A man tried to run away from police early yesterday when he was discovered interfering with a car.

Constable Andrew Holdaway, of Blenheim, said someone saw the man interfering with the car on Eltham Rd just before 2am.

He hid behind the car when police arrived and ran along the street as an officer approached him.

A 36-year-old vineyard worker was arrested at 2.17am and is to appear in the Blenheim District Court on Monday.
