The incident has resulted in three arrests with a 23-year-old charged with unlawfully carrying/possessing a firearm; a 29-year-old charged with resisting and assaulting Police; and a 48-year-old charged with resisting Police and dangerous driving.

All three are due to appear in Whakatane District Court tomorrow.
