Cops Smash Window To Drag Driver Out Of Car

Cops Smash Window To Drag Driver Out Of Car

Chinese traffic cops were not messing around when a suspected drink driver refused to get out of his vehicle - they simply grabbed a brick and used it to smash the window.

The incident happened in Dongying city in east China’s Shandong province where motorist Ho Hao, 38, had been out for a drink with friends.

Despite having only drunk one beer before he climbed into the car to drive home, he said that when he saw the police carrying out roadside checks he had panicked and sped off.

He was eventually stopped when police cordoned off the road but when officers surrounded the car he refused to get out.

Police spokesman Jun Lung said: "He was causing an obstruction to a busy road so it was clear we needed to get him out of there quickly. We couldn't take the car with him in it, so we broke the window and removed him from the vehicle with force."

Unfortunately for the motorist, despite his protest it turned out he was not even over the limit with one beer, but he now faces charges of resisting arrest, refusing to stop when requested to do so by a police officer and various other traffic offences that will certainly see him lose his licence and could see him jailed.

Lung said: "If he had stopped when requested nothing would have happened."
