A police helicopter was seen flying over a seaside town after a car crashed as it was being chased by officers.
The vehicle had tried to evade police after they requested it to stop in Margate Road, Broomfield - near Herne Bay - at about 8.30pm last night.
It then collided with another car and the occupants fled the scene.
A police spokesman said: "Following a search of the area, which was assisted by a police helicopter, a 31-year-old man from the Herne Bay area was arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle."
The suspect remains in custody as officers continue their investigation into the incident.
