An Indian River Sheriff's deputy chased a DUI suspect doing over 100 miles per hour, and the wild pursuit was caught on dash-cam video. The dash cam video shows the suspect, Robert Rogers, walking towards the deputies putting his hand in his pants as if he is pulling out a gun. The deputy saw that the suspect put his hand pointed like a gun and made a quick decision not to fire. "Deputy Flores realized he didn't have a fire arm, even though he was acting like he did, so rather than go to deadly force, which was probably an option which may have been justified depending on the suspect's actions, Deputy Flores instead put his firearm away and used his taser to try to subdue the subject," said Lieutenant Thomas Raulen. The chase ended in a physical scuffle between the Rogers and three deputies. One of the deputies suffered minor injures. Before the arrest the deputy had allegedly witnessed Rogers doing 109 miles per hour and running a red light, weaving in and out of traffic and posing a threat to the community. The sheriff's office is waiting on Roger's toxicology results. No one else was injured in the incident.
