A man has been arrested following a dramatic police take-down of a vehicle on the Don Valley Parkway (DVP) Tuesday afternoon.

Police said they were called around 3 p.m. for a report of an impaired driver on the DVP near the York Mills Road exit.

Investigators allege a woman was driving south on the DVP when her vehicle was rammed multiple times by a man in another car.

The man continued to follow her and at one point brandished a machete, police said.

Several patrol cars quickly caught up to the vehicles near the Dundas Street exit and blocked them in.
