A Timaru resident said they witnessed a Jeep Cherokeebeing driven in an aggressive manner in the Timaru CBD early on Thursday morning and ran to get out of its path as it was reversed at speed along the one-way Beswick St.
Police confirmed the two incidents were related.
The man was due to appear in the Nelson District Court on Friday.
“As these matters are now before the courts, Police have no further information.”
The Timaru Herald understands the retail store was Couplands Bakery. The company has been contacted for comment.
