A man has been arrested after threatening police with a gun in the Otago area.
The threat was made after the man failed to stop for police in Balclutha.
The Armed Offenders Squad was called after the 27-year-old, who was wanted in relation to a previous incident, failed to stop for police about 7.20pm on Monday.
The man "eventually" came to a stop and got out of the vehicle, before "presenting a firearm" at officers, says a police spokeswoman.
"No shots were fired and the man was taken safely into custody."
He was expected to appear in court today.
