Body camera footage captured a Seattle Police bicycle officer ride down stairs to pursue an armed suspected drug dealer last week.
The chase broke out Dec. 15 when officers spotted a man selling drugs near the Pioneer Square transit tunnel, the department stated in a press release. The suspect ran into the tunnel, and the officers followed, navigating their bikes down the stairway in a maneuver the department compared to the 1989 Nicole Kidman movie "BMX Bandits."
"There, the suspect, in a move reminiscent of Looney Tunes, attempted to bamboozle the officers by taking a seat on the stairs and directing them upward. The officers were not fooled," the department stated.
The suspect was arrested and faces gun and drug charges.
