Police have been led on a chase lasting nearly 50 minutes from Lake Macquarie to Port Stephens.
Officers began chasing a Hyundai at Fennell Bay at around 10:30pm Sunday after the driver failed to stop for an RBT.
The chase went through several suburbs, before officers used road spikes to stop the car at Ferodale near Raymond Terrace.
It's claimed the 29 year old male driver from Jesmond was under the influence of drugs.
He's also been charged with driving while disqualified.
He'll face Raymond Terrace Local Court today.
