This is the moment the British police ram a BMW after the driver failed to stop and then drove dangerously through town streets.
The video was shared on Facebook by the Nottinghamshire Police following a car chase in the East Midlands region.
The footage shows the driver trying to escape officers by doing a U-turn at the end of some roadworks.
However, the police take the opportunity to ram the side of the BMW and bring the vehicle to a stop as other patrol cars arrive on the scene.
The police said that they safely stopped the vehicle after it was driven dangerously through red lights and on the wrong side of the road during rush hour traffic.
The BMW driver failed to stop for officers and narrowly missed a number of vehicles as he sped through the streets.
The Nottinghamshire Police said: “Officers had tried to get the vehicle to pull over after its number plate was recognised by cameras in connection with an offence, but when it continued driving a pursuit was authorised which lasted around 30 minutes across various parts of the city including Mapperley, Arnold and Sneinton.
“The pursuit was brought to a safe conclusion on Colwick Loop Road by armed response vehicles using tactical contact on the vehicle.”
A 32-year-old man has been was arrested on suspicion of breaching a restraining order, dangerous driving, and failing to stop.
Nottinghamshire Police spokesperson Mark Stanley said: “Thankfully, despite some narrow misses, no members of the public, officers who gave chase or the suspect himself were injured. There was slight damage to the police vehicle involved.
“The man was arrested for outstanding matters and relevant driving offences. He remains in police custody.”
The investigation is ongoing.
