Watch: Suspect Drives Away in Patrol Car after Attacking Deputies

News

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office has released video of a Dec. 8 incident in which a patrol car was stolen by a man who had scuffled with deputies.

The PCSO says the video was recorded on a cell phone by a friend of the suspect.

The video shows a little more than two minutes of the incident which the PCSO says “was ongoing prior to the filming.”

After Jerry York, 51, reportedly bit a deputy’s hand, a struggle began as they tried to place him in handcuffs.

Deputies also tried using a taser but it failed and York was able to get into the patrol car, lock them out and drive away. He was eventually stopped and arrested a short distance away.

The two deputies and the suspect all had to be treated for minor injuries.

York was arrested on a string of charges. He remains behind bars at the Pulaski County Jail.
