Jersey City New Jersey Cellphone video shows police officers kicking and dragging an innocent bystander who was on fire following a chase and fiery crash in New Jersey Sunday night.
The incident happened just after 11 p.m. as Jersey City police officers tried to stop the driver of a car near Ocean Avenue and Cator Avenue.
During the pursuit, the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office said the fleeing driver was involved in two different crashes. In the first, officers fired shots at the driver as he tried to drive between two lanes of traffic, but they say the driver, 48-year-old Leo Pinkston, kept going.
Several blocks later, on Tonnelle Avenue, the fleeing driver crashed into a utility pole, causing a fire that somehow injured another driver in a different car.
It’s apparently this driver, 28-year-old Miguel Feliz, who can be seen in the video (watch the graphic video in the player below). He gets out of his car and is on fire as officers approach him.
In the video, the first officer goes up and kicks Feliz, knocking him down. Another officer appears to kick him as well.
The officers then drag him away from the fire scene, off the sidewalk and into the road. He was eventually hospitalized with severe burns.
“My brother right now is in very bad shape,” said Ramon Feliz, the victim’s brother. “Thirty percent of his body is burned.”
