Australian Cop Gets Flung in the Air During Stolen Car Getaway
An Australian cop can now say he’s doing his own stunts – because that’s exactly what he looked like as he flew through the air trying to stop a guy who allegedly jacked a car.
A Victoria policeman found himself roped up in an action movie scene late last week in Melbourne as he attempted to detain a man who cops said was escaping in a stolen car – allegedly, because it violated the country’s Fourth Stop lockdown restrictions.
The man didn’t want to talk though, and according to authorities … jumped into that whip and tried to leave. This cop wasn’t going to let him go easily, as he tried to pull the dude out the driver’s side, but things went to the left when they started to reverse.
Due to his position on the door, the officer was fired when the car struck another car behind it on impact. His body was thrown at least 10 feet or so, and he collided with a parked car incredibly hard before getting up and continuing to chase the escape driver.
We have to say, the cop here is pretty tough all things considered. It is said that he suffered only minor injuries as a result of the frightening encounter. As for the suspect, he was reportedly apprehended and sentenced on several counts. Also … they say he contracted COVID-19.
