(Scroll down for video) The driver of a dump truck was arrested on a charge of dangerous driving after smashing three police cars because he was angry that the air condition in his vehicle did not work, police in the United Kingdom said.

Now, 40-year-old Nicholas Churchill of Brandon, has pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicle taking, dangerous driving and driving while unfit through drugs.

According to the police investigation, Churchill caused around $75,000 in damages, following a dispute with his employer about air conditioning in his dump truck.

He jumped into his truck despite the fact that he was intoxicated, and began driving erratically. Drivers called police to report Churchill.

Six police cars and a helicopter were called to follow Churchill, but two police cruisers ended up being totaled while a third was badly damaged.

Churchill also broke street signs during the wild chase. Churchill finally stopped near his home.
