A man has been charged with numerous driving offences after officers used tactical contact to stop a car that had rammed police vehicles.

It follows a report of threatening behaviour in Ascot Road, Radford at around 11pm on Friday (16 October) and offenders had fled the scene.

A black Honda Civic car was tracked down by Nottinghamshire Police half-an-hour later which failed to stop for officers from Operational Support who skillfully brought the incident to a safe conclusion and arrested five men.

Kane Williams, 21, of no fixed address, has been charged with failing to stop for police, failing to stop at a road traffic collision as well as driving while disqualified and without insurance.

He is due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates' Court tomorrow (19 October 2020).

Four men, aged 20, 22, 22 and 26 also arrested have been bailed pending further enquiries.

Detective Sergeant Nick Wood, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This incident saw fantastic work from our Response and Operational Support officers.

Their team work and quick thinking led to five men being arrested shortly after the initial incident, one of which has now been charged.

“The fact that no one was injured in the incident is an example of how highly-trained our officers are to respond to difficult situations.

“My team continues to make enquiries and we're appealing to anyone who may have seen something suspicious in Ascot Road around the time it happened to get in touch.”

If you witnessed the incident or have any information or footage that could aid officers in their investigation, please do not hesitate to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 892 of 16 October 2020.
