Two Denver police officers were injured during a slow chase of a John Deere tractor stolen Friday night after more than a dozen squads had pursued city streets , the authorities said. The lawsuit ended after a police vehicle hit the tractor full force, deploying the cruiser's airbags, a witness told FOX31 Denver. The driver jumped out of the car and overpowered the suspect with a stun gun.
"As soon as this collision occurred, the officer on the side of that driver had come out of that door and was out with his Taser instantly," said the witness Marcos Willman at the station. "I have the impression that it was just adrenaline, just like up and we get this guy."
