Horses Help Police Capture Fleeing Suspect

It was a sight to see when three horses help police arrest a fleeing suspect. When it comes to police pursuits, you never know what is going to happen. A fleeing suspect can be very dangerous and when you’re trying to capture them on foot, it adds another layer of difficulty for the police department.


The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office in Florida recently apprehended a subject in the most unusual way. A man tried to evade the police by driving away and hiding his car in a backyard. That’s when he got out of the vehicle and started to run through a neighborhood. He eventually reached a horse pasture and that’s where the real drama unfolded. A helicopter captured the entire ordeal on an infrared camera as the pilot helped the officers on the ground. You can see in this video released by the sheriff’s office that as the man began to run through the pasture, it caught the attention of three horses. They started to chase after him and eventually led him right to a fence.

As the suspect jumped over to escape the horses, the police were able to stop the man and place him under arrest. Ultimately, these horses helped to slow the suspect down and force him into an area where the police were located. I guess it’s safe to say that you never know what your day is going to be like when you are a police officer. What did you think of this unlikely takedown?
