Shoaib Moeen, 25, spent ten minutes trying to lose officers who were in hot pursuit 

Moeen ignored red lights and regularly drove on the wrong side of the road in a bid to lose his pursuers 

After 10 minutes, Moeen jumped out of his car and tried to escape from police on foot

While weaving in and out of traffic, the yob can been seen throwing bags of drugs out of the car window.

During a ten-minute chase, Moeen repeatedly drives on the wrong side of the road and ploughs through red lights.

He abandoned the car on a roundabout after he burst a tyre and fled on foot but was arrested nearby.

Officers found he was carrying £500 cash and after an area search they recovered a bag of white powder from the street which turned out to be cocaine.

Shoaib Moeen, 25, pictured, was jailed for 13 months at Nottingham Crown Court and banned from driving for two-and-a-half years following the chase

Moeen, of Bulwell, Nottingham, admitted dangerous driving and possession of cocaine.

He was jailed for 13 months at Nottingham Crown Court on Wednesday.

He was also banned from driving for two-and-a-half-years and will have to take an extended re-test.

PC John Jackson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: 'Moeen took the lives of others into his own hands when he dangerously drove through busy streets without any regard for the safety of others.

'It was lucky that he didn't strike another vehicle or pedestrian.'

'He thought he could get away from us, knowing full well that we would find the drugs and cash on his person.

'He made the wrong decision and we are glad that we have now been able to hold him to account for his criminal activity.

'Along with dangerous driving, we take drug offences very seriously, and work to eradicate it throughout Nottinghamshire.'

He was forced to abandon his car after he destroyed a tyre when he clipped a kerb
