Looks like it was a little more successful than an attempt.

It wasn't successful at all. If you click the link instead of expanding, you'll see a link to the source video. The cop didn't have flat tires and eventually rams/swipes the driver onto a guard rail. There's a second car involved.

But you can't see any of that from the happy little gif.

Also, OP, those aren't spikes. Those are caltrops

All caltrops are spikes. Not all spikes are caltrops.

This thread was at the top of /r/wtf on Reddit for a long time. Probably reposted the exact imgur link.

If the cop car had a blue shell he could have turned that around real quick.

You mean not enough? Clearly he should have used an oil slick instead. Caltrops are for civvie vehicles. Piggymobiles have reinforced tires that won't go flat.

Today's asphalt has a nice amount of rubber actually mixed into the mix, so unfortunately, oil slicks are a bit outdated. As the oil eats into the rubber's fibers, it will create a sticky mess that I'm going to hypothesize would actually help create traction, not decrease it. What we need to use today is a long, deep, and wide box packed to the brim with large-gauge steel ball-bearings. Hit a button on the dash, open the compartment and let gravity do the rest as they work their way up under the wheels of the pursuers. Viola! We just gave them tiny wheels (sans axles and drive train) for their wheels! No steering control, though...but that's not our problem, now is it? >:)

Well. Thank god he got away. Cuz im sure theres a ton of drugs in that car and every time they bust a large shipment of drugs local prices go up in the area. Which is just annoying. Fuck you pigs. Nothing could make me happier than watching that car leave your broken down flat tires ass in the dust. Yay drug runners.

That was in lithuania. IIRC there was 12 vietnamese imigrants in there. Turbo probably blew up which caused the smoke.
