This shocking footage of a police chase was released by authorities in Birmingham, Alabama, on Wednesday. The footage comes with news that the five police officers we see arresting the driver have all been fired.

The images were filmed on 23 January 2008 by a patrol car. The driver, Anthony Warren, who ran into an officer in attempting to flee, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison. His lawyer didn't get hold of the video until March this year: despite numerous officers having access to the document, none of them made it available. Warren has filed a claim against the city for $100,000 (73,000 euros). His lawyer says that, among other injuries, his client suffered severe concussion and a skull fracture during the assault.
