The surreal scene took place between Boissise-la-Bertrand and Seine-Port shortly after midnight. Initially, it was a simple broken rear light that caught the attention of the police. And while the latter wanted to alert the person behind the wheel of this observation, the driver refused to submit to the request of the officials on patrol and decided to accelerate in order to flee.

Despite the rapid use of a stop-stick (a tool to be placed on the ground which allows a vehicle to be stopped) by the patrol and a flat tire during this intervention, the unconscious fugitive managed to continue his race along the banks of the Seine at high speed. Fortunately, he will be forced to stop at the Saint-Fargeau-Ponthierry bridge. Fortunately, the chase did not cause any accidents and no injuries were reported.
