Police watchdog reveals what sparked arrest which ended in 'medical epioside' 

We reported in May how the 33-year-old father-of-three, a convicted drug dealer, was jailed for dangerous driving and driving while disqualified near Worcester at the city's crown court.

He was arrested after a pursuit which began near the Copcut roundabout in Droitwich at around 4pm on Sunday, March 13.

The pursuit ended with the defendant, who has 13 previous convictions for 23 offences, abandoning his BMW in Cornmeadow Lane in Claines.

At one stage the BMW was described as 'reversing towards them (police) at speed' and 'officers were caused to reverse back to avoid a collision'.

During the pursuit Lisseman ran red lights, went on the wrong side of the road, crossed solid white lines and exceeded the speed limit.

He crossed the Copcut roundabout again without slowing down before 'continuing at speed on the A38' towards Worcester.

The chase was deemed so dangerous that police ultimately abandoned the pursuit and the BMW was found unoccupied in Cornmeadow Lane in Claines.

Dogs were used to track Lisseman and he was found in the grounds of a nearby church.

"He claimed he had been in the church and started to walk away," said Matthew Cullen, prosecuting.

However, officers stopped and identified him. Keys to the BMW were found in a bush in the churchyard.

Lisseman was jailed for 10 months and banned from driving for three years and five months. He must sit an extended driving test if he wants to drive again.
