Thanks to some quick thinking and good reflexes, a police officer survived what would have been a devastating situation. After pulling a car off the road for a traffic stop, officer Sam Hall of the Irving Police Department in Texas was almost finished when another car came barrelling toward them, hitting his motorcycle. The police department released the body camera footage to highlight the state's "Move Over" law which requires motorists to change lanes when they see officers and emergency vehicles on the side of the road.

This is NOT the PJ these cops were looking for... just a case of similar-looking cars. Whatever "PJ" did, it must have been pretty serious for one of these officers to almost immediately begin battering down Leon's car window! As glass flies, we can only imagine the shock our poor driver must have felt. The duo's temporary suspension probably came with little relief for innocent and traumatized Leon. No word on the whereabouts of the real PJ. View Now
