A west Australian police officer caught a suspect mid-swim after the man jumped into the water during a police chase.
Police said the man had a "subject to return to prison warrant" and evaded several police units before taking his dive into Canning River last week.
A police officer wasted no time going in after the 26-year-old man and apprehended him in the water.
The whole ordeal was captured on helicopter camera footage.
The man was taken into custody.
