Police fire shots at car going over 200km an hour

A driver going at only over 200 kilometres an hour only stopped after a pursuing police patrol shot at his car, a police spokesperson said. The 29-year-old driver fled from police near Jaroměr in Eastern Bohemia on Wednesday night and ignored megaphone calls and warning shots from officers attempting to force him to pull over. Traces of narcotics were found in the blood of the driver, who has twice been banned, while methamphetamines were found in the handbag of a female passenger, the police said.
