A man who drove unruly and dangerously in Helsinki is suspected of violently resisting an official and endangering traffic safety.

The Helsinki police informed about the matter.

According to Helsingin Sanomat, this was a taxi that used Helsinki's brokerage services.

HS has seen a video uploaded to the TikTok app of the capture, the existence of which is also known to the police, but does not comment further on the content of the video.

The incident occurred early on Saturday, shortly after midnight, when the police carried out a two-man patrol in downtown Helsinki Erottajankatu transport task.

In that connection, one driver escaped in his car, putting another constable in danger when the fugitive was driven over.

The patrol reached the driver at the red traffic lights.

Police prepared for the use of force, but the arrest proceeded calmly after police first knocked on a window.

The suspect is under arrest.

Taxi Helsinki CEO Jari Kantonen commented to HS that the driver is now banned from brokering.
