A female motorbike passenger has been arrested after the bike’s rider veered off onto a walking track in a Kingscliff park during a police chase on Saturday (December 23).

About 8:40pm police sighted the unregistered motorbike travelling at high speed on Turnock Street, Kingscliff.

Despite the police activating their lights and sirens, the bike’s rider accelerated and a pursuit was initiated.

The bike travelled at speed through several local streets and onto Kingscliff Street, Kingscliff, before turning into Rotary Park.

The rider then performed a wheelie and entered the running track at high speed at which time police terminated the pursuit.

Police searched the area and located motorbike cycle stashed in bushland near Rotary Park.

They established that a 35-year-old female located nearby had been a passenger on the bike during the pursuit.

She was arrested and taken to Tweed Heads Police Station where she was charged as a passenger failing to provide details of driver and released on bail.

She is due to appear at Tweed Heads Local Court on January 22.
