This is the shocking moment a drink-driver reversed at speed and hit two police officers who tried to drag the motorist out of the car and fired shots as the vehicle fled the scene.

A video shows the officers patrolling the streets of Heredia in the central Costa Rican province of the same name when the car suddenly reverses towards them at speed.

The car sent two officers flying while a third was able to narrowly move out of the way. The driver then crashed into a road sign before changing gear and attempting to flee the scene.

Police officers manage to get to their feet and one of them hits the car window with his baton while trying to open the door while the motorist speeds away.

Another man can be seen chasing after the car and firing shots as it zooms away.

According to reports, officers gave chase in a patrol car and the driver was eventually caught and arrested.

The man, who was not named, allegedly tested positive for alcohol and was arrested while his car was seized by the authorities.

The two policemen, whose identities are not known, escaped without serious injury with only one needing medical attention. He is currently on leave.
