A man has been charged with drink driving in connection with a police chase in the early hours of the morning.

It’s alleged a police officer was hit with a gate while chasing a suspect who had been stopped on suspicion of drink-driving in Victoria Gardens, Watnall, on Monday, February 7.

Andrew Nally, of Victoria Gardens, Watnall, will appear before Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, February 24.

The 44-year-old was charged with obstructing an emergency worker, resisting arrest and drink-driving in connection with the incident.

Sergeant James Hirst, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “An officer did unfortunately sustain minor injuries from this incident, following a short chase.

“The force has a zero-tolerance approach to drink-driving and we will continue to stop any motorist we suspect of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

“The decision to get behind the wheel after having a drink can have major repercussions and can lead to utterly devastating consequences that can ruin and sometimes end lives.”
