Drunk Audi driver’s catch in Panevėžys reminded of action film: police cars crashed

On Friday evening, Panevėžys police officers noticed a suspiciously maneuvering Audi car marked with German registration numbers near the former Ekranas factory. The crew decided to stop the vehicle for inspection.

However, the driver decided to avoid confrontation with the police and increased speed to Trakiškis. More police crews soon joined the hunt, but the Audi driver was not going to give up easily, pointing his middle finger at the window.

He tried to block the police cars, approaching them dangerously several times. After turning the wheel on icy gravel roads near Margučiai village, the driver of the Audi turned to the city again. Even more police crews joined the hunt here.

After returning to the city, the refugee started flying on S.Kerbedžio Street, later turned to Nevėžio Street, from there – to Marijonų, then to Stoties Street and finally tried to turn to S.Kerbedžio Street again. Here, another road user who saw the incident blocked his way, but the Audi driver managed to avoid this firewall as well. Although the police officers had already ran to the car and were going to pull the driver outside, the fugitive was able to bypass the Peugeot that got in his way in front of him and smoked on S. Kerbedžio Street.

Finally, the driver of the Audi turned to Senamiesčio Street and headed towards Kupiškis. On several occasions, police crews tried to block the fugitive, but the one was in a fighting mood and crashed into an official car.

The hunt continued for another couple of tens of kilometers, until finally Kupiškis police officers met the driver of the Audi with a forced braking device, the so-called hedgehog. The Audi driver ran through the spikes and stopped on the side of the road. However, when the officers approached him, Audi moved again and crashed into another police car.

However, this time the fugitive failed to escape. Officials smashed an Audi window and pulled the driver out of the car. It turned out to be a person known to the police. A driver born in 1984 was found to have a drunkenness of 1.70 per mille. He was delivered to the hospital.

The driver is facing not only a criminal case for drunk driving, but also responsibility for running away from the police and two damaged police cars. Audi was taken to a police car park. The court may confiscate the vehicle.
