A fleeing driver, who was behind the wheel of a cloned car, resorted to jumping into a canal in his bid to evade Roads Policing officers from Chesire Police yesterday.
After almost ending up in the canal whilst still inside the car, the driver leapt out of the driver’s seat and straight into the canal before swimming to the other side.
Unfortunately for the driver, his efforts to run away from the consequences of his actions failed, and he was arrested a short time later without any officers having to take the plunge.
He now faces charges of drug driving, driving with no insurance and driving otherwise in accordance with a driving licence.
The passenger was also arrested for drug offences.
