A 20-year-old man from Buckinghamshire was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, failing to stop for police and possession with intent to supply Class B drugs.
He is currently in custody at Melksham Police Station.
A rucksack, containing a large amount of cannabis, which had been thrown from the vehicle, was also seized by police.
Det Con Ben Brewster, from Wiltshire Police’s Community Tasking Team, said: “Despite the Covid-19 pandemics, we are continuing to apprehend and arrest those who come into Wiltshire with the intention of transporting and supplying drugs.
“The driver in this case was obviously desperate to avoid officers, as he was driving in an incredibly reckless and dangerous way, reaching speeds of up to 90mph.
“Thankfully, nobody was injured and the pursuit came to an end safely and relatively swiftly.”
