This is the moment a driver who crashed while being pursued by cops head-butts the passenger window and throws himself through it ‘like a dolphin’ before trying to run off.
The 24-year-old suspect, named as Tyler Fayconsolo, was arrested in Marion County in the US state of Florida on 15th October.
The dashcam video footage shows the police in the high-speed chase with the suspect.
Fayconsolo drove at a speed of 100 mph (169 kph), running through a red light and driving the wrong lane.
As the police noticed the strange behaviour of the driver, they tried to stop him.
He then continued to flee driving at high speed, making dangerous manoeuvres and entering a parking place.
Officers said they successfully managed to deploy stop sticks to his tires.
The footage also shows him breaking through a concrete fence where he was forced to stop the car.
Fayconsolo then is seen smashing the passenger’s window with his head and jumping out of the car.
As he tried to flee, the police layed him on the ground and arrested him.
Marion County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement obtained by Newsflash on Thursday, 19th October: “You see, Tyler decided not to use his head most of the night, and it started with him leaving the Circle K on SE Maricamp Road at a high rate of speed, driving erratically.
“Tyler began driving at speeds of up to 100 mph, unable to maintain his lane and ran a red light. Due to suspicion of Tyler being under the influence while driving, K-9 Cpl. Esquivel attempted to perform a traffic stop.
“Yet again, Tyler didn’t use his head, and he refused to stop. Tyler attempted to make several evasive manoeuvres to try and elude K-9 Cpl. Esquivel.
“Tyler attempted to drive on the wrong side of the road, entering the Greenway Trailhead parking area, where he almost hit two individuals who were parked at the trailhead.
“After that, Deputy Eniah Eck successfully deployed stop sticks, which deflated all four of Tyler’s tires.
“Yet, Tyler still continued to flee through a fence of a home on SE 23rd Street. However, the back part of the fence was concrete, and the vehicle became disabled.
“This is where Tyler used his head, but not how you should … he head-butted the passenger side window and came flying out like a dolphin.
“But in Tyler fashion, he stopped using his head once again and thought running from a K-9 was a great idea. K-9 Jet was released, and he took a bite out of crime – and Tyler.
“Tyler was arrested and transported to the hospital, where he stated he was “High as *f—k*” before being transported to the lovely Gold Star Hotel, where he remains.
Fayconsolo was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, aggravated fleeing with Injury or damage, and resisting without violence.
Local media said that his bond was set at US 53,000 (GBP 43,571).
He is set to appear in court on 14th November.
