Authorites claim the driver was bent on doing bodily harm to the German chancellor; "specifically an attempt to use violence against an official," according to mirror.co.uk.
The Mirror posted this headline, 'Assassination attempt on Angela Merkel' feared as armed man arrested 'trying to infiltrate German chancellor's motorcade' in Prague.
A feared assassination attempt on German Chancellor Angela Merkel has reportedly been foiled in Prague.
Czech police halted an armed man in a black 4x4 Mercedes as he allegedly tried to join Merkel’s motorcade during her visit to the capital.
"The perpetrator has been detained,” police spokesman Josef Bocan said.
"He is suspected of attempting to cause a crime – specifically an attempt to use violence against an official.”
“The incident is currently being investigated by Prague detectives.”
The chancellor was in Prague to meet Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka.
She was travelling from the airport to the city when the suspicious vehicle appeared on the outskirts of the city, Russia Today reports.
The Mercedes driver is reported to have refused to obey orders coming from police cars accompanying the German chancellor.
He is alleged to have carried on trying to enter the motorcade and cut off a police vehicle that was trying to stop him.
The driver reportedly only stopped and got out of the vehicle after police warned him that they were going to shoot.
It comes as Europe remains on a state of high alert following a series of shocking terror attacks over the past 12 months.
France, Germany and Belgium have fallen victim to atrocities committed by alleged jihadists, claiming hundreds of lives.
Meanwhile, it has been reported that Islamic State fighters are using drones equipped with HD cameras to co-ordinate suicide bomb attacks in a chilling leap forward in terrorism technology.
The hi-tech jihadists are believed to have purchased hundreds of the flying robots via the internet through the black market and third parties for up to $1,000 per unit.
Twisted ISIS military chiefs are known to send drones into the sky to spy on their enemies - or to give orders to mobile suicide bombers on the ground.
This new chilling footage captured by one of the group's own cameras is thought to show an unnamed terrorist bragging about the technology which ISIS has at its disposal.
ISIS is increasing the size of its drone unit in a bid to launch more deadly attacks.
