A man has been charged after a pursuit through Lambton overnight.
Just after midnight police attempted to stop a YAMAHA motorbike on Orlando Road in Jesmond but it failed to comply.
Police chased the 21- year-old rider through Lambton before he was arrested after stopping in the driveway of a motel on Brunker Road in Adamstown.
He was taken to Waratah Police Station and charged with high range PCA and police pursuit.
He’s set to face Newcastle Local Court today.
