Suspect who pointed gun at cop in viral video is arrested after high-speed pursuit

CLEVELAND — Police in Cleveland have arrested a man they believe is connected to a viral video that showed two men pointing guns at a cop sitting in his patrol car. 

In the video, the men are pulled alongside a squad car while waving guns at the officer in broad daylight, Fox 8 reported earlier this month. The officer doesn’t appear to notice, perhaps due to tinted windows. The video made its rounds on social media and prompted a police investigation. 

Now, police say they have arrested one of the men in the video. According to FOX 8, Anthony Bonner, 23, was arrested Friday after Euclid Police tried to pull him over for a traffic stop. Bonner took off, leading officers on a pursuit that reached speeds up to 120 mph, police said. At one point, Bonner pulled over and barricaded himself inside a home before surrendering to police, helicopter video shows. 

Bonner has been charged with aggravated burglary, improperly handling a firearm in a motor vehicle and tampering with evidence, according to the report. He is held on a $75,000 bond.
