“He started running from them. He was like, ‘I didn’t do nothing,'” said the suspect. “He was running in circles, and then eventually they end meeting up. He tried to get back in his car. They tried stopping him again. They kind of went one on one.”

Another guest said he and wife looked out the window and witnessed a policeman lying on the ground. The officer who was taken to the hospital was treated for head pain, but is in stable condition, according to WSVN.
