A drunk driver has been jailed after hitting speeds of up to 139 mph while being chased by police. Rimell Taylor, 38, was pursued by officers for 12 minutes as he desperately tried to avoid capture. Shocking dashcam footage shows him driving the wrong way round a roundabout, ploughing down the middle of a road, and overtaking another driver on a corner. Taylor eventually screeched to a halt in his grey BMW after a stinger was deployed. He was arrested at the scene in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom. He was found guilty by a jury at Cambridge Crown Court in March of dangerous driving, driving whilst disqualified, driving without insurance, and drunk driving. He was jailed for 21 months and disqualified from driving for three years and 10 months.
