Caddy overtakes a van on a curve and turns to avoid stationary traffic after police officers tried to get it to stop.

He races through a red light and reaches 90 miles an hour before losing control and bumping into railings in front of a child's room.

Caddy, wearing a t-shirt and shorts, tries to flee on foot, but a police officer catches up with him on his motorcycle.

The officer stops his motorcycle, jumps off, and grabs Caddy’s foot to trip him.

The fleeing driver is pulled to the ground and arrested by an officer who shouts: "Give us your hands! Give us your hands & # 39;

When later questioned by the police, Caddy said he had taken a friend who had left a bag of cannabis in his car and panicked when he saw the police.
