Watch moment con man pretends to be hit by a police car

CCTV footage in China has caught the bizarre moment a man pretended to be run over by a police car.

At the start of the video, a man can be seen stood looking at his phone in what appears to be the car park of a police station. However, when a police car sets off, the man suddenly decides that he will lie in the road, staging an accident between him and the police car.

The police car manages to complete an emergency stop, albeit at a slow speed, avoiding hitting the man, meaning he is therefore uninjured.

Once police officers begin to get out of the car, the con man then gets up, before fellow pedestrians then start arguing with the man.

The incident happened in Hefei in the Anhui province of China.

It is not known if the man was arrested for staging an accident.
