24-year-old Giacomino Morrone flipped his number plate and pulled a wheelie when he spotted the police before he opened up the throttle on his motorbike and sped off.
During the pursuit, Morrone blasted through red traffic lights at speeds of nearly 100 mph.
Because he flipped his number plate, Morrone undoubtedly thought that he would get away with his dangerous riding after the police were forced to call off the pursuit.
But Morrone had not counted on officers making ANPR inquiries, which led them to his home address, just as he was dismounting from his motorbike.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
