Bizarre dash cam footage captures the moment the allegedly drunk driver ploughs his vehicle into the water, before getting out and trying to make a break for it.

The man, named by local media as Daniel Basham, from Texas, drove his SUV into Lake Arlington after being chased through the streets by Arlington Police Department.
