A Northern Virginia man being chased by police jumped out of his car as he attempted to run away Tuesday, only to be hit by his still-moving vehicle.
The incident was caught on an officer’s dashboard camera.
According to the Fairfax County Police Department, Isaac Bonsu, 30, was not injured but he was arrested and charged with a DWI.
In the dashboard video, Bonsu is seen getting out of his car on a residential street in Alexandria, a Washington suburb. But Bonsu apparently forgot to put the car in park. The video shows him running in front of the car and being struck.
Bonsu gets up and continues running. Police say they caught him, unharmed, after a brief foot chase.

Police say they initially pulled Bonsu over Sunday morning because of an apparent equipment violation.
Charges against Bonsu include a third-time DWI, felony hit-and-run and illegal window tint.
Court records don’t list an attorney for Bonsu.
