A video of a Hyundai Sonata that drove over a police car's hood has surfaced on the internet and has garnered some significant attention. The incident took place in Brooklyn after police officials found a white Sonata parked in a no-parking area in Crown Heights, with three people inside the car.

When the officers approached the car, they could smelled marijuana and directed the driver to step out of the car, local media reported. Following the order, as soon as the driver came out of the car, the passenger sitting on the front seat allegedly jumped on the driver's seat and took over the steering wheel. An officer fired a Taser at the person twice, however, that did not deter the individual and he put the car at full throttle hitting the rear of a parked car.
