Two people have been charged with offences including attempted kidnap, carrying an imitation firearm, assault and dangerous driving, after police forced a vehicle to stop on the A12.
The pair have been charged with a number of offences after a car was tactically stopped by specialist officers on Friday.
Police had been called after a man was reportedly shot in Jaywick at about 2.15pm.
A short time later, officers were authorised to pursue a car along the A12, with support from the police helicopter and other units.
Sunil Singh, 27, of Rectory Road, London, has been charged with attempted kidnap, common assault and possession of an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.
Gurmet Kaur, 44, of Wilton Square, London, is charged with a public order offence, four counts of common assault and dangerous driving.
They are both due to appear at Colchester Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
