A 25-minute police chase down the A47 was sparked when a suspected drink driver refused to stop for officers.
PC Dan Taylor tweeted on Saturday to say a vehicle had failed to stop in Great Yarmouth, which resulted in a pursuit that ended on the A47 outside Norwich.
He said the stinger - which deflates tyres - was used twice during the 25-minute chase.
Once caught, PC Taylor said the driver, who had been using their mobile phone, blew 106 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath - more than three times the legal limit of 35.
He said the driver was arrested for drink driving, dangerous driving, failing to stop and driving while on a mobile phone. They remain in custody.
