This is the horrifying moment that a driver appears to perform a ‘brake-check’ on a HGV before being arrested for drink driving.

In the short clip the lorry can be seen driving down the M18 just outside of Doncaster heading northbound.

The white Renault Megane then moves into the left-hand lane in front of the HGV.

It was at that moment that the smaller vehicle allegedly began to brake in front of the larger vehicle.

The lorry then seems to slam straight into the back of the hatchback.

This caused a visible dent in the tail of the vehicle.

The two vehicles then pulled into the hard shoulder and the Megane driver stepped of his vehicle to confront the HGV driver.

Police were called due to the damage.

However, they suspected the car’s driver had been drinking and arrested him on suspicion of drink-driving.
