A man has been arrested after driving a car into a house in Halesworth and then allegedly assaulting a police officer.
A police search was sparked last night after a man drove into a home that was believed to belong to members of his family, and then allegedly assaulted the first police officer on scene.
This led to a search involving the police helicopter, before he was arrested in Lowestoft today.
Police were called to School Lane, in Halesworth, just before 7.45pm to reports that a man had driven a car into a home, smashing through a brick wall and into the bathroom.
