This footage shows police pursuing a dangerous driver as he jumped red rights and went the wrong way around bollards before a stinger brought his car to a stop.

Timothy Glover, 32, got out of the car and ran off but he was swiftly detained by officers.

Glover, of Madryn Walk, Bestwood, was searched and found to be in possession of quantities of cannabis and cash.

When officers searched his car they found 80 deal bags of cannabis hidden under a seat and more cannabis in a bag on a seat. More cannabis was found when police searched his home address.

Glover was sentenced to a total of five years in prison after pleading guilty to four charges of possession with intent to supply cannabis and further charges of dangerous driving, driving without insurance and driving otherwise than in accordance with a driving licence.

He was also banned from driving for four-and-a-half years when he appeared at Nottingham Crown Court for sentencing on Tuesday (2 June 2020).

Officers were on duty on the Bestwood Estate on 22 March 2020 when they were made aware of a silver Vauxhall Zafira being driven by Glover.

Glover pulled over in Hartcroft Road, after officers had turned on their blue lights, but then sped off as they were getting out of their car.

Following a nine-minute pursuit Glover’s car came to a stop in Main Street, Bulwell, after a stinger was deployed.

Police Constable Catherine Maunder-Green, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Glover’s dangerous driving could easily have resulted in more serious consequences as he drove at speed in an attempt to avoid police.

“He showed a blatant disregard for other road users and it’s only pure luck that no-one was hurt as a result of his actions.

“Thankfully he was swiftly arrested after the car came to a stop and he is now facing the consequences for his actions.”
