A London drug dealer was no match for Cambridgeshire cops out to rid the county of heroin dealers.
Even after the drug dealer rammed their police car, there was no way they were going to let him get away.
They got their man – and on Wednesday he got jailed.
Calvin Shallow, of Melford Road, London, put his Toyota Hybrid into reverse and rammed into the front of a police car after it parked up behind him in Keyworth Court, Huntingdon in December last year.
Police managed to get into the vehicle and arrest the 27-year-old.

He was jailed for two years and nine months.
