A Belconnen man will face court on dangerous driving charges after an alleged speeding incident near a school zone.
ACT police say an officer on a motorcycle tried to get a 32-year-old Evatt man, who was driving a blue Subaru Liberty, to slow down as he was approaching a school zone in Spence about 3.30pm on Tuesday.
It's alleged the man drove away from police onto Kingsford Smith Drive, Alpen Street and Alfred Hill Crescent at speeds of more than 100km/h in a 60km/h zone.
Police found the driver and the car later that afternoon.
The man allegedly tried to run away from the scene but was caught by police as he tried to jump over a fence.
The man was charged with failing to stop for police, dangerous driving, driving while disqualified, using an unregistered and uninsured vehicle, drug driving and attempting to escape from custody.
He will appear before the ACT Magistrate Court on Wednesday.
