A stolen ute was driving dangerously on Linwood Avenue when police tried to pull it over about 2am this morning.

The chase came to an end after road spikes were used in the city centre, and police arrested four youths, a police spokesman said.

The ute had been reported stolen from an Ashburton business earlier.

It was not clear how badly damaged the police cars were after the incident.

A 16-year-old appeared in the Christchurch District Court today facing a string of driving and drugs charges.

The other three have been referred to youth aid
