After a high-speed chase in which police attempted to lay down a tire deflation device to stop the suspect vehicle, a police cruiser bumps the white minivan they were chasing, causing it to crash. As the van rolls over, the driver flies out of the window into a ditch. Several Birmingham police immediately rush in to "get some" and brutally beat the unconscious driver. Apparently, the driver did not even know he had been beaten until he later saw the video, thinking all of his injuries were from the crash. Five of the pigs have now been fired.
