SAN DIEGO — Dash cam video has been released capturing a suspect running down an officer with a patrol car.

KGTV reports Officer Jeff Swett suffered multiple injuries in the vehicular assault after police responded to a call of a home invasion in January.

The suspect, William Bogard, managed to steal Swett’s vehicle as police responded and struck the officer.

Swett suffered two broken arms, a broken leg, and trauma in his head and neck from the attack.

Bogard was stopped after another cop on the scene opened fire, striking the suspect in the leg.

The suspect is currently on trial for two counts of attempted murder on a peace officer, among other charges.

Swett is currently recovering from his injuries.
