On Tuesday, a man was pulled over by local authorities on suspicion of an equipment violation. After realizing the cops were closing in, 30-year-old Isaac Bonsu exited his car and attempted to make a getaway. But, it appears he forgot one important detail, as he didn’t put his vehicle in park as he tried to flee the scene.

Fairfax County Police in Virginia released dashcam video of the incident. Bonsu got out of his car after pulling over on a residential street in the Alexandria area, a Washington DC suburb, but didn’t put his vehicle in park or engage the emergency brake.

The video shows Bonsu trying to run as his car continued to roll forward. He appears to be hit by the front end of the vehicle, briefly rolling up onto the hood, effectively running him over.

Bonsu gets up after being struck by his own vehicle and continues trying to flee from police.

Local authorities were able to catch up with Bonsu, who was unharmed and deemed “okay physically” by the cops, after a short foot chase and take him into custody.

After his capture, police determined Bonsu was intoxicated and also found him in possession of marijuana.

Bonsu, who has two prior charges for DWI, was arrested on charges of DWI, felony hit-and-run, and having illegal window tint on his vehicle.

As reported by CBS Philly, court records do not indicate an attorney for Bonsu.
