Inspector Paul Cannon, who is in charge of policing in South Derbyshire, said: "Those concerned must have thought this was a bit of fun
but there was no regard to safety.
"We warned the motorist and those involved of the dangers and offered him some very strong advice that if he were caught again we would seize his vehicle."
