The video captures an incident that took place on October 30, while officers were attempting to arrest three suspects in connection with a pair of burglaries.

From the dashcam’s perspective, the police chase the suspect across the street and he runs back out into traffic and is hit by a vehicle.

Following this, he runs across the median toward another vehicle and is bitten by the canine unit. Afterwards, a number of officers jump onto the suspect.

Police arrested two suspects prior to deploying the canine unit, however, they released it when the third suspect fled. Unfortunately, the canine unit accidentally bit a 75-year-old, innocent bystander and he was taken to hospital. Following this, VPD deployed a second canine unit that successfully aided in the arrest of the third suspect.
