The dramatic chase took place at midnight.

"Wondering if the driver was either lost or trying to avoid us we put the blues on twos on and off it went.

“The driver made some particularly poor decisions following this, which included going the wrong way round a roundabout and travelling at a very high speed.

"Soon after ambition outweighed ability and damage was caused to the wheel of the car, but even that didn’t stop him.

"The wheel eventually came off, literally, but even that didn’t stop him and he continued towards Tickhill on three wheels with sparks and debris flying behind him.

The drivers tire flew off.

"One thing vehicles don’t do when they have wheels missing though, is go around corners very well.

"This came to pass as he crashed into the kerb and unfortunately a parked car.”

The Doncaster man will appear in court for the charges soon.

The car collided with a parked car.
