I guess TikTok is increasingly gaining credibility as a citizen journalism tool, or tool of serendipitous witness as may really be the case here.
TikToker SarahMarie716 captured this takedown of an apparent police suspect, which also includes a Buffalo police cruiser inadvertently ramming the back of another, while arriving to help. All in all, "I got this on video gold!" type of situation.
The picture below links to the video, but if you prefer now, here's the link too.
It's not clear exactly what the suspect in this video was wanted for, but he knew he was in trouble, since, as police caught up to him he immediately got on the ground and assumed an arrest position.
He is subsequently cuffed and the arrest is complete.
There is a lot of "inert" negative commentary on the TikTok's thread for this video about how many police had to run over to the already complying suspect, but the arrest itself looks clean and routine.
But that crash? It was probably minor in police terms, but it sure sounded hard! I am sure the actual ouch to BPD ego will be on the Dukes of Hazzardness flavor this whoopsie endears.
