An Opunake youth was arrested yesterday after a short police pursuit through the town.
Constable Kylie Brophy said the 15-year-old, with a passenger in the car, was seen driving erratically through a playground where children and their families were present.
No-one was hurt. The youth, who is known to police, is to appear in the Hawera Youth Court on Tuesday.
