Wiltshire Police have released some dashcam footage of the moment when the driver of a Mercedes C300 drove at nearly three times the posted speed limit in a bid to get away from the police.
The incident happened on Friday 22nd May after PC Christopher White saw the white Mercedes driving at speed in residential areas.
PC White signalled for the vehicle to stop after catching up with the car.
The driver, 22-year-old Ruban Martins, initially did stop, but as soon as the police officer got out of his vehicle, Martins made off from him.
Martins was stopped a short time later and was put before Swindon Crown Court on Friday 12th Feb.

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?
