VIDEO: Fla. Officer Fired for Running Over Suspect

A DeLand (Fla.) Police officer has been fired for fatally striking a suspect with his patrol car as officers closed in during a pursuit.

Officer James Harris was among the three DeLand PD cruisers chasing Marlon Brown, 38, on May 8. Brown began sprinting through a residential vegetable garden, when he tripped. The two lead patrol cars stopped, and Officer Harris continued the chase. Brown can be seen on the officer's dash-cam footage tripping and turning as the vehicle strikes him head on.

DeLand Police Chief William Ridgway fired Harris immediately after viewing the video footage, reports the Orlando Sentinel. The officer was still on probationary status. Last week, a grand jury elected not to file criminal charges against Harris.

The chase began with a traffic stop for a suspected seat belt violation.
