A daring half-mile chase ensued, but it ended rather unusually with Bonsu jumping out of his car and starting to run off. But as he neglected to stop the car fully in his haste, he was immediately run over by his own vehicle.

Uninjured, Bonsu got up and attempted to run but was quickly caught by police.

Police said Bonsu was unharmed by the incident and subsequently charged him with driving while under the influence of alcohol, possession of marijuana, disregarding an officer's signal to stop, driving with a revoked licence, driving with an open container of alcohol, hit-and-run, and illegal window tint.
