Video shows moment police car performs bizarre sliding doughnut manoeuvre when arriving at scene of brawl

CROWDS were left stunned when a police car looked like it performed a sliding doughnut manoeuvre as it dramatically arrived at the scene of a brawl.

Footage shot during a night out in Gillingham, Kent, showed the vehicle spinning at speed before coming to a screeching halt facing in the opposite direction.

Kent cops were already at the scene dealing with rowdy revellers when back-up arrived at around 3am on Sunday.

Seconds after Warren Wallace starts filming the drama on his phone, blue flashing lights appear in the background – before the car spins just yards from crowds on a residential street.

A crash is heard as it hits railings while coming to a stop on the other side of the road, parked up next to the pavement on Canterbury Street.

Uploading the footage to Facebook, Warren wrote: “Gillingham’s answer to 2 fast 2 furious”.

Jeers can be heard in the background as the police get out of the vehicle after being called to deal with the disturbance.

One shouts: “What the f***? Do you want to kill people?”

The video sparked on online debate between amused viewers over whether the parking manoeuvre was planned – or just pot luck.

But police say it was purely accidental after the wheels skidded on the wet road.

One viewer commented on the video: “I say he lost control and fluked the parking.”

Another said: “That cop got skills lol.”

While someone else added: “Not sure he actually meant to do it but he styled it. Even the blokes kicking off were impressed haha.”

A Kent Police spokesman said: “A police patrol vehicle attending the incident skidded on the wet road whilst it was coming to a halt and it was involved in a minor collision with some railings.

“Nobody was injured as a result of the collision.”

Two men were arrested following the disturbance and have since been released without charge.
