Police deployed an armored vehicle to pry open the cabin of a truck on a highway in Texas, after the driver refused to stop or get out of the cab.
Officers had used spike strips to stop the vehicle, police said, but the driver still refused to get out of the vehicle.
After using an armored battering ram to pry open the cabin of the 18-wheeler the officers sent a police dog in to subdue the man. Then they were able to arrest the driver following an hours-long standoff on Wednesday, December 27.
Police stopped the truck, because it was moving slowly and erratically but the driver refused to exit the vehicle. They used a vehicle known as rook, to tear through the cabin’s window and passenger side door and used a police dog and gas canisters to subdue the driver. Aerial footage showed a SWAT team dragging the driver out of the cabin.
