Wild Video Shows Cop Grasping For Life On Hood Of Suspect’s Car

A new video showing an Iowa police officer clinging to a suspect’s car has gone viral on Twitter.

In the video Officer Patrick McCarty pulled over Dennis Guider Jr.’s car and told him he has a warrant out for his arrest.

Shortly after Officer McCarty informed Guider of the arrest warrant, Guilder who was in the passenger seat at the time, slid into the driver’s seat after the driver fled the car.

McCarty would then get in front of the car and jump on the hood after Guilder drove right at him.

Here’s what the New York Post reported:

Newly released video shows an Iowa cop desperately hanging onto the hood of a suspect’s car during a wild police chase in 2021.

The dramatic body and dash cam footage, released by Carroll police, shows the moment Officer Patrick McCarty clings to the hood and then roof of Dennis Guider Jr.’s car before he is flung off into a ditch — the impact breaking his back, according to KCCI News.

McCarty pulled the car over on March 5, 2021 and informed Guider, who was sitting in the passenger seat, that there was a warrant out for his arrest in Illinois.

“I hate to be the one to tell you this, but it sounds like you’ve got a warrant out of Illinois,” McCarty said, in the video recorded by his body cam.

He calmly asked him to step out of the vehicle, but instead the driver got out and Guider slid behind the wheel, according to the video obtained by the local station.

Guilder would eventually drive up to 50 mph and officer McCarty lost his gripped and suffered major back injuries.

Per The Daily Mail:

Footage shows him shouting at Guider as the car started to roll forward.

He then climbed on to the hood of the red vehicle and pointed his gun through the windshield and yelled: ‘Stop the car. Stop the f****** car.’

Guider ignored the pleas and continued to drive and McCarty shouted at him to ‘pull over’ and ‘put on the f****** brakes’

He continued to drive away at speeds of 50 miles per hour with McCarty clinging on to the roof as several police squad cars joined the chase.

Guider then turned into a gravel lot and drove through a ditch which is when the police officer lost his grip and fell to the ground.
