Man and woman caught having sex after three-hour Melbourne police pursuit

A man who allegedly led police on a dramatic three-hour pursuit through Melbourne was discovered having sexual intercourse with his female passenger when the vehicle was finally pulled over.

The 27-year-old Fawkner man was with a 23-year-old woman when he allegedly drove the red Volkswagen Golf 100km/h over the speed limit on Minns Road in Kurunjang about 11.45pm on Sunday.

Police chased the car and deployed tyre spikes at an intersection, puncturing two tyres. But while the car slowed when the tyres were taken out, the driver allegedly did not pull over.

At this stage, the Volkswagen could only drive at about 40km/h due to the front wheels being down to the rims.

Police cleared other traffic ahead of the car and deployed more spikes at the Domain Tunnel.

The car stopped near Montague Street in South Melbourne just before 3am.
