A driver ploughed his car into two other vehicles before a police SUV rammed him off the road as he attempted to shake off police drugs squad officers in an early-hours chase in Tsuen Wan yesterday. A man has been arrested on suspicion of drug trafficking and the offence of furious driving. Police say the car, a black Honda Jazz, was spotted by officers from the Tsuen Wan District special duties squad on Lo Tak Court shortly after midnight after they received a tip-off. The squad is part of a specialist police team dealing with drug-trafficking offences. When officers tried to intercept the car, the driver sped off in an attempt to flee the scene. The detectives then gave chase for a distance. In the process, the Honda crashed into two private cars parked on the roadside. The car was only stopped in the end when an SUV driven by police officers pushed it against a set of railings by the side of the road. A video of the incident taken by a passer-by and posted on the internet yesterday shows the driver continuing his attempts to flee when plainclothes police officers approach the stopped car. The driver is seen refusing to get out despite the demands of the officer, and continuing to press the accelerator despite the fact the car is immobilised. "Stop! Stop!" one plainclothes officer shouts at the man. Another officer is seen banging the roof of the car hard with his hand. One of the officers is then seen putting his hand on his holster and shouting to the driver: "Get out or I will draw my gun." But the driver continues to ignore the police warnings. The police officers then smash the car's passenger side window with a baton and lean into the car to restrain the driver. Police say they found 50 grams of suspected high-grade cocaine in the man's bag. The drug haul has an estimated street value of HK$72,000. Two male police officers received minor injuries to the arm and shoulder during the incident. Police said the man arrested was 27 years old. They are now investigating whether he had any further connection to drug trafficking and whether he had any connections to triad gangs. The maximum penalty for drug trafficking is life imprisonment and a fine of HK$5 million. The maximum penalty for furious driving is two years in prison. Some 1,646 drug offences were recorded in the year to October, a fall of 14 per cent on the same period last year.
