Police stopped a car on Wednesday as part of a drugs investigation, but when the female driver got out of the vehicle and co-operated with police her passenger allegedly slid into the driver's seat and drove off.

Despite the car crawling along at a very slow speed with its hazard lights on for several miles, mainly along a major interstate route, police only stopped the white car once an armoured police vehicle joined the pursuit.

The armoured truck managed to pushed the suspect's car into a concrete barrier before it span to a halt.

The suspect was surrounded by armed officers as he tried to climb out of a rear window.

Fort Worth police said after they seized more than 400 grams of methamphetamine, the suspect faces felony charges of evading arrest and possession of a controlled substance.
