FRESNO (KRON) — A dash camera video released by the California Highway Patrol shows a crowd of people attacking a patrol car in Fresno.
The officers responded to a report of a vehicle driving recklessly.
When they arrived, police were met by a crowd of about 80 people who were watching the side shows.
The officer walks up to a white Chevy Tahoe that police say was doing donuts and tries to get the driver to turn off his car.
Instead, the driver just takes off.
The officer gets back into his vehicle and that’s when things began to turn violent.
“This was absolute anarchy on the part of the individuals that were vandalizing the CHP vehicle with him inside. I have no doubt that had that officer got out of the vehicle, they would have attacked him,” Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer told KMPH.
As the officer attempts to get away, several people begin to kick his vehicle’s doors and his windows are shattered.
So far, three men have been arrested in the incident, but they continue to search for more suspects.
