VIDEO: Wild N.J. Pursuit Triggers $17M Lawsuit

A wild police chase on the streets of New Jersey is now taking center stage in a lawsuit filed against Bergen County. It's the officers' actions that are the subject of an investigation.

The Aug. 17, 2010, chase took cops through six towns. Two men in a black SUV are seen on video fleeing the scene of a botched burglary. They speed through residential streets, weave through traffic and barely miss cars.

At one point, they swerve to avoid a police cruiser. The video was captured from the patrol car of two Bergen officers who were pursuing them. The video shows the suspects finally stopping after being hit by another car. That's when one of the officers is heard firing his weapon as a suspect runs into the woods.

Now, one of the suspects, Francesco Piserchia, 36, who is seen in custody on the video, is suing the Bergen County police for $17 million, alleging that he was surrendering when the officer opened fire.
