The man continued to drive dangerously before parking the vehicle on Binowee Street, Aspley.

The man continued to drive dangerously along the inbound lanes of Sandgate Road, Northgate and at 7.35pm police entered an authorised pursuit and brought the vehicle to a stop underneath the Nundah bypass tunnel.

Two police vehicles sustained some minor damage.

A 26-year-old Kedron man has been charged with various driving offences, including unlawful use of a motor vehicle, dangerous operation of a vehicle, obstruction and driving without a licence as well as an attempted robbery with use of violence charge.

He will appear before the Brisbane Magistrates Court later today.
