Stunning dashboard camera video from a Feb. 19 incident in Marana, Arizona, shows a police car slamming into an armed suspect at high speed, launching him into the air:

The suspect, 36-year-old Mario Valencia, was hospitalized and released into custody. Before the moment captured on video, he had allegedly robbed a 7-Eleven while holding a “metal object,” set a fire at a church, broken into a home, stolen a car, and stolen ammunition and a rifle from Walmart. He was carrying the rifle when he was struck and had reportedly fired it in the air and pointed it at police and at himself.
