Video Police getaway fail

Slippery grass two youth nill

THIS is the moment some slippery grass put pay to a teenager’s efforts to evade police on a scooter.

Police helicopter footage shows the youth cutting through alleys in a housing estate before falling off twice on the same small patch of grass as officers on the ground close in.

The rider, aged just 13, then legs it and manages to give one officer the slip but eventually runs out of steam and is apprehended by another.

Three youths are seen on the scooter at the start of the West Midlands Police video but two get off before the chase through Birmingham’s Druids Heath.

Police say the helicopter was despatched following a report of the scooter almost colliding with a family in May.

The scooter was found speeding along footpaths and tracked from above as officers on the ground caught up.

The 13-year-old was arrested, questioned and given a caution.

West Midlands Police said: ‘Back in May we had a call from a concerned family who were almost hit by a motorbike carrying three people.

‘Officers and the NPAS helicopter were despatched to the Druids Heath area to locate the vehicle and quickly found it speeding through footpaths on the estate!

‘The motorbike was tracked from above by the helicopter enabling officers on the ground to catch up with it.

‘The 13-year-old riding the bike then made a run for it and after initially evading one officer was arrested by a second moments later.

‘He was questioned about what happened and handed a police caution.’
