VIDEO: Suspect Runs Himself Over With His Own Car Fleeing Police

A suspect ran himself over with his own car on Sunday morning in Virginia.

Mount Vernon, VA – A man who was fleeing from police ran over himself with his own car in Fairfax County (video below).

Fairfax County police said they initiated a traffic stop on Isaac Bonsu at about 1 a.m. on Sunday morning for “apparent equipment violations,” KRCG reported.

Bonsu, 30, failed to stop, and fled police. He led police on a chase that that included a trip through a Starbucks parking lot and an apartment complex.

Eventually, Bonsu jumped out of his vehicle and took off on foot. However, he failed to put his car in park before he got out of it.

Fairfax County PD released dashcam video of the tail end of the chase on March 4.

The video showed police pursuing Bonsu on a residential street. He took a sudden right, and stopped briefly in the middle of the road.

In the video, Bonsu sprung out of his car and onto the street, and then ran in front of his car to get away. The car hit him, so that he effectively ran himself over.

He jumped back up, and the video showed him flee again, with an officer hot on his tail.

Police caught and arrested Bonsu during the foot pursuit. They said he wasn’t injured from being hit by his car, WTTG reported.

Bonsu was charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI), felony hit and run, two counts of misdemeanor hit and run, disregarding an officer’s signal to stop, driving while revoked – DWI related, driving without a license, driving with an open container, possession of marijuana, and illegal window tint.

The DWI charge was his third arrest for drunk driving, according to a Fairfax County PD Facebook post on Wednesday that included the video of the incident.
