THE GUARDIA CIVIL has released a driver arrested last weekend for ramming a family vehicle in Torreguadiaro.
The arrested slammed into the car containing a father and his three-year-old daughter 16 times in an attempt to force the driver out of the fast lane. Following the assault the BMW fled from police officers, leading them to shoot out the tyres in order to immobilise the reckless driver.
After the vehicle crashed into a roundabout, agents arrested the culprit and found contraband tobacco in his possession as well as discovering he had stolen the vehicle the previous Thursday.
The Union of Guardia Civil Officers has criticised the prosecution’s failure to apply for prison without bail after significant risk was posed to both citizens and police officers.
The offender is now free to roam the streets of Sotogrande until Judicial Courts begin the prosecution proceedings.
