This is the moment a drink-driving BMW owner reverses right into a cop car while trying to escape a police checkpoint.
The suspect surnamed Xu had encountered the police drink-driving checkpoint at 2:40am on 19th December and immediately stopped and then threw his car into reverse to back away from the cops.
Authorities in Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang Province, recognised the evasive behaviour and went in pursuit of the suspect’s BMW while also calling for backup at the same time.
CCTV cameras show Xu reversing away on a narrow road at high speed when the backup cop car comes into view.

The BMW crashes right into the front of the car driven by officer Zhou Yihua, who suffered head injuries during the collision but steadied himself to make the arrest with his colleague.
The video shows the BMW slowing down after the crash, with the suspect Xu appearing to be dazed before being detained by the officers.
Hangzhou police found Xu over the legal limit and have arrested him on drink-driving and evading justice charges.
Officer Zhou is hospitalised at the Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine.
