Police Chase Stolen Porsche Through Snowy Streets of Birmingham

Police in Birmingham, UK, said a man was jailed for 16 months after leading police on a high-speed pursuit in a stolen Porsche 911 on January 25.

The West Midlands Police said that the driver, Lee Smythe, lost control of the car in the snowy conditions, before he was rammed off the road by a patrol car.

“We used some tactical contact to box him in and were able to swiftly get him in handcuffs,” PC Rich Storer said. “It was a good job – to have him locked up little more than two hours after the Porsche was reported stolen was a great effort.”

Smythe admitted aggravated vehicle taking, dangerous driving, failing to stop for police, and firearms possession, police said. He was sentenced on February 25. Credit: West Midlands Police via Storyful
