Chevy Camaro Rammed By Police Following High-Speed Pursuit: Video19
The decision to run from the cops usually ends quite poorly, and unfortunately, the pursuit featured in the following video is no different, especially for the Chevy Camaro would-be getaway car.
Recently posted online, the video was captured in Arkansas by Arkansas police on November 22nd, 2022, around 3:40 p.m. local time. Per the video description, Arkansas State Police attempted to pull over a Chevy Camaro that was seen speeding across an overpass. When the Camaro failed to stop, police gave chase.
According to a police incident report, the suspect traveled southbound on Interstate 530 in an attempt to lose police, with speeds topping 140 mph. After exiting I-530 at exit 30, the suspect began to speed up again, crossing State Highway 104 before entering the southbound entrance ramp, all while weaving through traffic. Three troopers eventually joined the chase, with the third trooper, Darryle Hinton, taking lead. That’s where the video comes in. As the video gets underway, we see Hinton join the chase from the shoulder, with the Chevy Camaro weaving in front of the camera car as it speeds up around traffic. We see speeds approaching 130 mph before the suspect dives for an exit.
As the Chevy Camaro enters a turn at more than 100 mph, we see the front end of the car start to wash out, sending it understeering towards a guardrail. The suspect tries to apply the brakes, but the Camaro slams into the barrier, causing it to spin and ricochet off the adjacent barrier.
The chase is over, and we see the suspect attempt to exit the car. However, as he’s stepping out, another state trooper accidentally slams into the front of the Camaro, unable to brake in time. The second trooper narrowly misses Hinton as he exits, while the 19-year-old suspect is knocked down.
Miraculously, the suspect only had minor scrapes and bruises. Check out the full video right here:

When they finally caught this punk, I bet he was crying and begging for his mommy in the back of the squad car.
Lock up the degenerate for a few years and suspend his license while you’re at it.
The justice system doesn’t work. People commit crimes, get locked up for a year or 2 then goes right back to committing crimes. I think we need harder punishments, so that people will think twice before breaking the law. And I think all police officers should get their salaries doubled.
Go watch the hundreds of videos on you tube about police altercations. Many police in all states don’t know the law very well. Mind you even here in Montreal the gun comes first.
When a police officer who spends his/her life serving the safety of civilians gets shot, it’s heart breaking. When a criminal gets shot, that’s karma. Because let’s be real, nobody gets caught for every crime they commit. Criminals generally commit many crimes just to get caught once. Police should draw their weapon first.
If you listen carefully he does not cry or ask for his mommy. Typical dumb comment.
No, he just sounded dumber than a box of rocks with all his hood mumble.
More likely, my dad’s a cop; cut me some slack.
I agree in Infamous above.
However, having been a police officer and having watched this video on Carscoops last week and again just now, there is no justification for that officer coming in so hot and ramming the suspect’s car. Not only did that put the other officer, the officer driving the squad and the suspect in even more danger, but it caused unnecessary damage to the squad. I am thinking that the officer just came in too hot and wasn’t able to stop in time. At least I hope that’s what it was.
Read it again. Its all there. Coming too fast, couldn’t brake enough.
Agreed, looks like a bit too hot, but got slow enough where the unit had less damage than the Camaro. I read that into the troopers response when asked several time if he was ok, & one mention was his airbag didn’t deploy.
Damn that was some severe understeer. 5th gen Camaros can’t even touch the handling capabilities of 6th gen Camaros.
The driver knew how to put his foot down, but had no idea how to drive.
It wasn’t an SS or ZL1 which has different suspension, brakes, stuff like that ……. Even so though, 5th gens do handle good. Not good as 6th gen like you said, but, they aren’t bad. I’d put my money on the driver not knowing how to drive before I’d blame the car.
Shows the importance of “Driver Training” and knowing the limits of your talent and that of the car !
And these bad actors live among us. Hello increased auto insurance rates for all of us. If you understand insurance premium calculations they are based on regional risk pools and national risk pools. Too bad we cannot hang this driver by his family jewels.
That hit didn’t look like an accident…that cop that came in hot is an a-hole (IMHO). That said, the Camaro driver deserved it for that poor attempt…
Well technically if a cop pulls you over… or chasing you in high speed pursuit, you’re supposed to keep your hands on the steering wheel where they can see your hands and comply. If you open the car door it looks like you’re trying to make a run for it. I don’t think that officer did anything wrong, even if he rammed that car on purpose. One thing I learned from all my interactions with police is if you act like an asshole they will be an asshole back at you. If you comply respectfully, half the time they will just tell you to have a nice day and don’t do it again. And I am a coloured person too, who also drives a Camaro.
Blame the “defund the police” democrats. Anyone who voted for joe Biden lol
