There are many adjectives that we could apply to the driver of this Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, but we ultimately hope that he faces the full might of the law after mowing down a police officer in New York this weekend.

The video, captured by a bystander, shows the driver doing burnouts through Times Square, before being interrupted by a quick-acting (and rather brave) police officer, who then jumped in front of the vehicle in an attempt to pull the driver over.

But the Merc driver was having none of this and tried to outmanoeuvre the cop, who was prancing from side to side in front of the vehicle. 

Failing to shake him off, the driver just accelerated, knocking down the officer, and then sped down the street. The driver then side swept a few cars further down the street.

According to The New York Post, police are still searching for the driver.

The police officer thankfully only suffered minor injuries, according to the publication.
