A suspected drink driver has been arrested after police found empty bottles in their car.

The officers tried to flag the Ford Focus down but it “gave them the run around” as it continued driving dangerously to evade them.

More officers were called in and following a pursuit around Iver and Gerrards Cross the car was stopped.

Noticing empty bottles in the car, officers carried out a breath test which the driver failed.

The officers proceeded to arrest the driver, who can expect to appear in court in the near future.

In a post on social media, TVP Chiltern and South Bucks said: “During Burglary patrols, this vehicle had given NHPT the run around driving dangerously to avoid getting stopped around Gerrards Cross and Iver.

“Stopping the vehicle with the help of our Roads Policing colleagues, noticing empty alcohol containers. Driver failed the breath test and arrested.”
