A man has been charged with drug and driving offences after a police chase ended with a crash in Browns Plains last night.

The 26-year-old Regency Downs man allegedly lead police on a chase from Woodridge to Browns Plains, crashing it on the corner of Wembley Road and Browns Road after road spikes had shredded its tyres.

PolAir footage shows sparks flying from the car after its tyres were flattened. The man kept driving after the front passenger tyre came off the car.

PolAir spotted the car leaving a Hunter Street property at Woodridge about 9.30pm. Police say the driver drove erratically and at high speed, running red lights.

The car turned onto the M1 before exiting at River Hills Road, where the driver got out and changed registration plates.

He got back on the M1 and turned onto the Logan Motorway, before spikes were used at Tanah Merah, but the man continued to drive on the car's rims before the accident.

Police say they arrested the man after he took off on foot.

They found ammunition, methylamphetamine and GBL drugs and a concealable knife.

The man was charged with one count of dangerous operation of a vehicle, two counts of possessing dangerous drugs, one count of driving while disqualified, one count of authority required to possess explosives, one count of unlawful possession of a weapon and one count of receiving tainted property.

He was due to appear in the Beenleigh Magistrates Court today.
