A U.K. motorist took a joy ride through a public fountain last week, driving a silver Vauxhall Insignia through crisscrossing streams of water at the Wakefield, West Yorkshire city center.
Video footage captured of the driver shows a leisurely drive under the water streams. Whether the driver intended to get a free wash or couldn’t resist the temptation to cruise under the perfectly curved currents overhead, beckoning like a ready-made tunnel is unclear.
A police officer in the area didn’t care either way. The footage shows the cop swooping in to pull the driver over after the vehicle had made its way out of the fountain. The driver takes a turn with wipers on and fails to stop as the officer pursues with lights flashing. Onlookers cheer for the cop to stop him, but it seemed like the driver wasn’t planning on stopping without a low-speed chase.
“We are currently looking into this incident and will provide any updates when we have them,” a spokeswoman for West Yorkshire Police told The Telegraph. Click the link to watch a (very British) video of the event.
