A dashcam appeal has been launched following a police pursuit that started at Thorney but ended close to Chatteris.
Police said they pursued a Jeep several times on Wednesday along the A47 Thorney to Guyhirn and A141 Guyhirn to Chatteris.
Officers said the driver remains in custody on suspicion of dangerous driving and criminal damage.
Social media users took to the Policing Fenland Facebook page to say they had witnessed the pursuit take place.
One person said: "I am sure this is the vehicle that almost hit me on Creek Road. It was doing easily 50mph down the 30mph road. I noticed it had no rear number plate."
Another added: "I witnessed him hurtling past at Mill Hill roundabout heading into Wimblington. Police shortly after."
Others commended officers for managing to arrest the suspect, with one person writing: "Good work police people in catching him.
