Police posted the video on Twitter to remind drivers it’s the law to slow down and move over for flashing lights.
After that close call, the officer let the driver he had pulled over, go, and he ran back to his cruiser and took off after the pickup.
The driver of what police believe is a silver Ford F250 with diesel pipes, got away, but they are still investigating.
