Those ditches on the side of Highway 277 are great for collecting rainwater and also launching your vehicle. Officers tried to get the suspect in the ditch, but he launched right over them like the Dukes of Hazard on the run from the sheriff. This would lead to some clear damage to the vehicle causing it to visibly smoke.

One of the officers finally hit the suspect right where he needed to causing them to completely do a 180 on Highway 277. Thankfully the suspect was smart enough not to run on foot once his vehicle was done for. According to the video, the suspect got ten years for this little stunt.
