The crash occurred Monday at around 3:30 a.m. in the 2900 block of Eastern Avenue. It was all captured on an officer’s body camera.
The police officers were standing on the sidewalk beside the unoccupied cruiser when a Toyota RAV4 collided into it. None of the officers or the passengers inside the Toyota was injured.

“That’s what I get for playing this [expletive] game,” the driver could be heard telling police on the officer’s body camera video.
