Who needs GTA when you can watch the real thing, courtesy of the cops?

Footage of a real-life high speed chase has become a surprise hit on social media after being released by police in the UK.

It shows what happened when a douche-bag who broke into a private home decided to steal the keys to a $90,000 Porsche. The scumbag was spotted by a police patrol who proceeded to pursue him through a series of winding country lanes.

The clip shows him narrowly avoiding being smashed into by other vehicles as he weaves back and forth across the highway. He was eventually arrested after crashing off camera.

A 20-year-old man was later sentenced to several years jail at Lewes Crown Court in West Sussex. Good riddance, scumbag.
