Wellington - A New Zealand motorist who led police on a chase for 45 kilometres finally stopped when he had to use the loo, a newspaper reported on Monday.

Three police cars pursued the driver early on Saturday after he refused to stop when signalled to do so in the South Island city of Nelson, Sergeant Blair Hall told the Nelson Mail.
