Two police dogs and a police helicopter had to be called after a man fled the scene of a car crash in Lakenheath in the early hours of this morning.
Officers were out on patrol at around 12.50am when they encountered the abandoned vehicle which had crashed.
A spokesman for Suffolk police said the man “had decamped from the vehicle and ran off into the countryside”.
Norfolk and Suffolk Police Dog’s PD Kaiser and PD Nemo, who were helped from the air by the police helicopter from Boreham, Essex, were called to help.
PD Nemo located the man and he was arrested at 1.35am on suspicion of drink driving and driving without motor insurance.
