A driver in Jiangxi province who’d attempted to flee from a cop after he was caught running a red light ended up taking the officer with him on the hood of his car for nearly half a mile in what may truly be the worst. getaway. ever.
The driver, surnamed Yan, said he’d panicked when the cop jumped in front of his car in an attempt to stop him (which, as we’ve already learned, is an incredibly bad idea). He slammed on the gas instead of the brakes, and, in a very cartoon-like scene, left only the officer’s hat swirling in the dust behind him.
Initially, Yan didn’t want to pay the fine for running the red light, but now has been charged with running two red lights, speeding, assaulting an officer, driving without a license and reckless driving.
