Police have made multiple arrests following a series of dangerous driving incidents in the Albury region, including an incident where a police vehicle was almost hit.
Officers have been running Operation Hotspot since April, targeting offences involving cars and property.
Multiple arrests have been made in the past week, including of a 25-year-old man who drove at high speed in Thurgoona and narrowly missed a cop car.
Officers had attended a home in Tallowwood Street about 5.15pm on Friday to arrest the man on a warrant.
He allegedly got into a Ford Falcon and drove at speed, nearly hitting the police vehicle.
Officers chased the car but terminated the pursuit.
The 25-year-old was arrested at a home on Stanley Street in Albury and charged with police pursuit, dangerous driving, disqualified driving and having stolen goods in custody.
A second man, 24, was also arrested on outstanding warrants.
