A man was arrested after a low-speed chase where he allegedly played chicken with police.

It started on Belle Vista Drive in Dartmouth yesterday morning when a police officer pulled over a car for a cellphone violation. The driver allegedly pulled away when the officer got out to talk to him.

The police officer pursued the vehicle, and both drove about the speed limit.

On two occasions, the driver allegedly turned around and drove towards the police cruiser and swerved away at the last second.

He ended up back on Belle Vista Drive and abandoned the vehicle. A police K-9 unit tracked the suspect and arrested him.

Patrick Carl George Shea, 38, of Dartmouth faces a number of charges.
