Kent Row Has Very Unexpected Ending When Police Arrive
A row in Gillingham ended in unexpected fashion when the police made a spectacular arrival.
The video, filmed on Canterbury Street in the Kent town, showed a group of people arguing with police officers.
You can hear more officers arriving in a police car from the right. But the way they arrived is what has made the clip quite so popular.
The video, posted by Warren Wallace on Facebook and has been viewed over 6million times within 24 hours, shows witnesses shouting "You could have killed someone" at the police officers.
Kent Police said the incident is under investigation and the car was not part of their Road Policing Team.
A spokesman said: "Kent Police was called at 3.03am on Sunday 30 July to Canterbury Street in Gillingham following reports of a disturbance. Patrols attended and officers called for assistance.
"A police patrol vehicle attending the urgent call skidded on the wet road whilst it was coming to a halt and it was involved in a minor collision with some railings. Nobody was injured as a result of the collision.
"Two men were arrested following the disturbance and have since been released without charge.
"As with any collision involving a police vehicle, an investigation will be carried out to establish the circumstances."
