A police officer in Shanghai managed to walk away with only bruises after jumping on to the hood of a drunk guy’s car and clinging there for 10 swerving meters until the driver rear-ended another vehicle.
The stunt of semi-cinematic proportions went down yesterday morning when officer Wang Ronghua attempted to stop the drunk driver on Cao’an Road in Jiading district because he’d been driving the wrong way, Shanghai Daily reports.
The driver tried to change lanes right when he spotted Wang, and as the officer approached the vehicle, it accelerated. Naturally, he just leapt right on the hood.
“I had no time to turn back,” Wang said. “I had to jump on the hood to avoid being knocked down.”
Wang was left holding onto the car hood as he was carried for around 10 meters. The commotion came to an end when the driver eventually rear-ended another car. He later told police that he was so drunk ‘he didn’t know what he was doing’.
