In the most bizarre news of the day... a man riding a mobility scooter whilst being chased by police has been caught on video.

The scooter was filmed around 5pm yesterday weaving in and out of traffic in Timaru in a very low-speed chase by a police car with flashing lights.

"What is the old man up to?" the lady filming says, laughing as he makes his way up the footpath and weaves between cars on the road.

The video ends with the chasing police forcing the scooter driver down a driveway. A police officer can be seen leaving his car to continue the pursuit on foot.
