VIDEO: Arizona Police Car Rams Suspect, Ending Day-Long Crime Spree

Dashboard camera videos released by authorities in Arizona show a patrol car crashing into an alleged armed suspect who police said had been on a day-long crime spree, reports ABC News.

Mario Valencia's February 19 alleged spree included robbing a 7-11, breaking into a church and committing arson, invading a home, and stealing a car, the Marana Police Department said. He then allegedly stole a rifle and ammunition from Walmart and fired the gun not far from the store, according to police.

In the dashcam video, a gunshot is heard as Valencia is seen walking down the street in Marana, about 30 miles north of Tucson.

An officer then drives off the road and into Valencia, in a collision captured on two cruisers' cameras.

Valencia was hospitalized for two days after the incident, according to police.

The officer involved was cleared by county attorneys and returned to work after a few days.

Excellent job. Probably saved several lives including the suspect.

Good job officer! The perp was injured but lived and no officers hurt. The media and the liberals will see this as excessive force but it is not because he was armed with a rifle and was firing it endangering the general public.
