A car chase in Sussex came to a messy end after a man spectacularly fell neck-deep into a slurry pit while trying to outrun police.
Like a scene from an action thriller with an agricultural twist, the passenger of a stolen car was arrested once police found him up cow poo creak without a paddle.
Officers rescued the man from his deep dive into a world of cow pats, before handcuffing him in what has to be one of the smelliest arrests in history.
In a Facebook post, Sussex Police shared a rhyme to sum up the crime.
It reads: “This passenger of a stolen car thought he could get away, but it turned out not to be his lucky day.
“Eager to evade and fleeing in a hurry, the suspect was eventually arrested, neck-deep in a pit of slurry.
“Thanks to determined officers a rescue ensued, and they all ended up safe, but covered in cow poo.”
