Two men have appeared in court after a car was used to allegedly try to ram police off the road in north Cumbria.
Michael Clandillon, 26, from Liverpool, has been charged with dangerous driving and going equipped for burglary and appeared before Carlisle magistrates.
He is also accused of driving while disqualified and without insurance, after a car chase near Penrith on Tuesday, December 15.
He has entered no plea to the charges against him.
Stuart Whittaker, 33, from Middlewich in Cheshire, is accused of being a passenger in the Ford Focus at the time.
He pleaded not guilty to going equipped for burglary after tools, three mobile phones and a map of Penrith were found in the boot.
Both men will appear in court again on January 14, when their cases will be committed to Carlisle Crown Court.
