ATLANTA — A person operating a pickup truck was recorded on video while being apprehended after performing donuts at a busy intersection in northwest Atlanta, WSB reports.
The pickup driver was doing donuts in the middle of Northside Drive and 17th Street Sunday evening. It didn't take long for Georgia State Highway Patrol to show up at the scene.
A trooper turned on his emergency lights and siren, causing the F-150 to escape through the crowd, striking multiple pedestrians. One of the pedestrians sustained an injury as a result.
The trooper performed a PIT maneuver, forcing the F-150 to hit a curb, making the vehicle inoperable.
As depicted in the video footage, the state trooper maneuvered alongside the truck and eventually succeeded in bringing it to a halt. At that moment, the trooper exited his vehicle and leaped onto its roof, extracting the driver from the truck and taking him into custody.
