PERTH, AUSTRALIA – A man being chased by police drives a four-wheel vehicle into the ocean north of Perth in an unusual bid to escape.

Police had been following him for nearly two hours as he drove through sand dunes.

They watched from the beach as the man climbed from his vehicle as it was swamped by waves.

The two officers then went into the surf to apprehend him and pulled him from the ocean.
