A man tried to plough his car into police when officers told him to stop and he refused to do so.

Norfolk police said a 36-year-old man had been arrested in Dawber Close, King’s Lynn, at just before 1,30am on Friday, October 10.

They said officers were initially called to the scene following reports of a domestic incident.

When officers arrived, a man was in a vehicle and drove off, failing to heed the request by police to stop.

He then hit a lamppost and tried to drive at police officers.

A Norfolk police spokeswoman said he had not managed to hit any of the officers and that he was then stopped and arrested.

During a search, officers found the suspect in possession of a quantity of cannabis and two knives.

He was taken to King’s Lynn Police Investigation Centre to be questioned.
