Sarasota, Florida — On Monday, March 20, 2023, Sarasota Police officers responded to Mourning Dove Drive on Bird Key at about 2 p.m. on Monday for a vehicle burglary. When officers arrived, the victims said personal items were stolen from their vehicle. Officers discovered video evidence and developed a white 4dr S-Series Mercedes as a suspect vehicle involved in the vehicle burglary. Sarasota Police officers learned just after 5 p.m. the same white Mercedes was in a neighborhood on Longboat Key. Longboat Key police responded to a vehicle stolen from a home on Fair Oaks Place. Several people were home when the vehicle was stolen, but no one was hurt. Sarasota Police officers received a call just after 9 p.m. that the white Mercedes had returned to Bird Key.
Sarasota Police officers strategically placed their patrol vehicles at the entrance/exit to stop the Mercedes from leaving Bird Key. Officers at the entrance/exit learned the Mercedes was driving back towards them. The Sarasota Police officer who was injured anticipated the Mercedes would either try and drive onto a side street or crash into one of the parked patrol vehicles. The Mercedes drove past a parked patrol car and hit the officer head-on, flipping him over the vehicle. The officer was taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital and is now home and expected to recover fully. Sarasota Police officers followed the Mercedes away from Bird Key as it drove east on John Ringling Causeway, north on US 41, east on Fruitville, and was abandoned in the 2900 block of Orange Avenue. When officers arrived, no one was in the vehicle. No suspect has been arrested at this time.

🤣🤣🤣 good job officer, what could go wrong??? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
One more evidence that cops are dumb 🤣🤣🤣
"by stolen car?" more like, "by black driver."
Why on earth would the officer run towards a moving car? Just plain foolish to think he could stop it with nothing to protect himself with.
Whoa that Officer is smart he jumped. I learned that trick in Kung Fu 👍🏽
Why did the fool run to that side of the patrol SUV, dumb move.
the cop ran into the car on his own accord. If they charge him for that then its crazy. COp did not have to run in front of the car. Why he ran where he did baffles me. dude thought was was superman and was going to stop it with his hand
I'm glad the cop is going to be OK. That was scary shit
What he thought was gonna happen
In slow motion, you can see that his ego pushed him directly into the path of a speeding vehicle.
Wtf was he thinking?
He wanted to be a victim so bad bc why he run in front of the car like that 😭😭😭
That was stuntman material. I hope they get the idiot who did this bc it's attempted murder of a police officer.
Don't let that car buck you off officer. YEE!! YEE!!
Love them or hate them, You will still call the Police when shit hits the fan.
He ran right into that one
damn he looks like looping lui i hope he is ok now
There is better ways to get some vacation time than that, dam commitment.
CLOWN COPS 🤡🤡🤡 FIVE effing cars and you let him get away? And the "partner" should have shot him through the back window to begin with.
Why did that moron run in front of the car 😂😂 this is why IQ requirements should be mandatory and stop just letting everyone and anyone on the force
he did such a good job jumping and rolling off
bet you money he played football
Wouldn't wanna be this dude when they catch him!
What were his intentions? 😮😮 Stop the car with his bare hands?
That's attempted murder of an officer, they don't mess around in Florida that's gonna be some serious jail time
If you slow the playback speed to 0.25 you can see the officer was able to jump up a little and turn his back toward the car before making contact with the hood of the car, that's what saved him from serious injury or death. If he were caught flat-footed it probably would have had a different ending
Funniest shit I’ve seen ever 😂
That made for some sick bodycam footage though
I want to know the cops brain process as to why he went towards the car tho? Unless he really thought the car was going towards him and he tried to “dodge” but both camera angles show clearly that the car was never heading towards him.
poor dude ran right in front of it tho smh
For anyone who whines about cops shooting bad guys driving cars at them, here you go.
What a dumb A$$ cop to run right in front of a fast moving car. Maybe he was trying to get early retirement or at least a long vacation with pay. These Departments are hiring guys that act like children. He must have been so stupid he thought his body was going to stop that car, unbelievable.
If there was ever a time to mag dump on a car, that was that time…. Hope officer ok
That was pretty dumb why throw yourself in front of car going 50
