Footage of cops shooting at a drunk driver’s tyres in a classic and lengthy chase has gone viral.

The gun-happy cops are seen blasting away at the sozzled motorist in Lesnoy in central Russia.

The shootout was triggered after local lawmen received a call about a supposedly drunk driver in a green "VAZ-2106" driving recklessly around the streets.

Police in patrol cars managed to catch up with the driver and they ordered him to pull over via a loudspeaker.

The driver ignored them and continued on his erratic trip.

Police decided they had no option but to use their sidearms to shoot at the car’s wheels.

Before they opened fire one shouted through the loudspeaker: "Stop or I’ll shoot! Think about the passengers, fool!"

The car stopped when the driver ran out of road.

The 23-year-old driver was breathalysed and found to be way over the legal limit. He had lost his licence in the past due to driving under the influence.

He got ten days in the slammer.

Internet user ‘Pokermon_Russia’ commented: "He got caught, all in all. He was a rare Pokemon."
