Australian Police In Wild Chase (VIDEO)

A suspect took Australian police on a wild chase as he repeatedly thwarted efforts by the cops to stop his vehicle. The officers rammed into his car several times, and finally forced him to a stop. Officers swarmed the car to get hold of the driver when he hit the gas and took off in reverse, this time dragging an officer for several yards before swiveling the car around and throwing the officer from the vehicle. The thrown cop got up easily, so we assume he hasn't suffered any serious injury.

The driver then speeds off down a highway against the traffic. Eventually the police corner the man, but not before he led them on a wild ride.
