Ion Bucar, 29 and from Coventry, has been charged with aggravated vehicle taking and dangerous driving.

Bucar was one of two men who were arrested after being tracked down by a police helicopter 29 miles away from where the police car was shunted.

A second man, aged 23 and also from Coventry, has been released without charge.

Bucar is believed to have been behind the wheel of a stolen BMW 1 Series which police tried to pull over in Upper Villiers Street, Wolverhampton, on Monday evening.

According to police, the BMW was wearing cloned plates and rammed into officers before fleeing and eventually being spotted by the police helicopter heading into Coventry.

It was tracked to Eld Road in the north of the city before two men abandoned the car and ran into Culworth Court, where they were arrested by response officers in a block of flats.

Bucar, of Hampton Road, Edgwick, was due to appear before magistrates in Leamington Spa today.
