A 22-year-old Picton man has been charged with dangerous driving after an incident on December 30.

Police received complaints after a blue Subaru sedan was seen being driven erratically in Blenheim and Picton.

Police officers in a patrol car tried to stop the car on State Highway 62 at Rapaura but it sped off at more than 150kmh.

A police spokeswoman said the man was to appear in the Blenheim District Court today.

A 20-year-old Picton man was arrested earlier in relation to the incident.

He was charged with dangerous driving, failing to stop for police and drink-driving.
