VIDEO: Police catch drunken biker after Liepāja chase

Take note – story published 4 years and 9 months ago

Latvian State Police have released footage of a pursuit through the streets of Liepāja in which they chase down and apprehend a motorcyclist who was found to be over the drink-drive limit. 

Ignoring repeated commands to pull over, the motorcyclist - complete with passenger riding pillion - makes an ill-advised run for it, reaching speeds of more than 200 km/h but is unable to shake off the law and is eventually captured, with his helmet given a robust introduction to the bonnet of the police pursuit vehicle.

Both driver and passenger were arrested.
