A man was pinned to the ground and arrested after a car crashed into a gatehouse in Broadstairs.
Police arrived in Church Street with a dog unit to detain a 45-year-old man from Rochester.
Photos show officers holding the man on the ground during the arrest yesterday afternoon.
He was arrested on suspicion of driving while unfit through drink and/or drugs.
But he was later released without charge as police said the case "did not meet the evidential test".
Police, who were called at 1.40pm, say no serious injuries were reported.
A woman was thought to be a passenger in the car when it smashed into the old gatehouse.
Witnesses say the damaged car did begin to drive off but only got as far as a speed hump 50 yards away.
Police enquiries into the incident are continuing.
