Manhunt Underway After Suspect Rams Motorcycle Cop, Steals Ambulance

Performing a traffic stop while on a motorcycle can be a nerve wracking experience. Law enforcement officers have no protection around them, if the suspect tries to get away or decides to shoot.

Crazy Stop

In Scottsdale, AZ, Matthew Thomas Crook, 34, was pulled over in his pickup truck by a motorcycle officer. However, Crook did not stay pulled over for very long.

According to the officer's bodycam footage, he rammed the officer then fled. A manhunt was launched to locate the six-foot, six-inch, 330-pound man.

When the officer stopped him, Crook did have a female passenger. In the footage, you can see Crook pull over. He sits for only a little wile before putting the truck into reverse and hitting the officers motorcycle.

The bodycam footage shows the office hurrying off of the bike and he drew his gun. Crook ignored the officers commands to stop, speeding off.

The officer chose not to fire his gun at the fleeing vehicle.

More Damage

Crook hit a vehicle as he fled. But hitting a car did not stop this suspect from his escape.

When he drove away, officers found him and attempted to pursue him. Crook evaded them buy driving into an apartment complex.

At the apartments, he and his passenger both got out of the truck and bolted. According to officers, they hijacked an ambulance who was responding to "an unrelated medical incident in the area."

Their ride in the stolen ambulance only lasted for a little while. Officers were able to catch the female who was with Crook.

However, Crook is still on the run. SPD is charging him with theft of an emergency vehicle, aggravated assault on an officer, among other charges.

Officer Update

According to SPD Public Information Officer Aaron Bolin, the police officer who was hit had minor injuries. The people in the car that Crook crashed into were not hurt.

Thankfully, the officer is alright, and hopefully, officers will be able to find this man and put him away. Attacking officers is unacceptable behavior.

  1. If someone is willing to do that to a police officer, think what they would do to the average person. Catch him, shoot him, no more problem.

  2. Could he be black? He just fool'n around, he don't mean any harm. Lock his A** up for a really long time.

  3. The MSM highlights bad acts by police but hide incidents like this and there are many many more like this. That goes for the DNC also.

  4. Yep defund police. Now you see what’s happening. Here in Arkansas two people ran over officer and killed him! Get a GRIP on these thugs.

    1. Who needs to "get a grip" are the semi savage scofflaws creating these problems. Law and order is the basic requirement for the survival of any civilized society.

    2. Here in NY with the Libtards in the Democrat Party running things there is no bail required and he would be let right out to repeat the incident.

      1. The Demon Rats don't seem too intelligent when it comes to
        criminals. It seems to be catch and release. Of course, they aren't intelligent about anything else either.

  5. Bud, whether the animal is black or white he needs to go to jail. Sounds like he is a low life pig that could care less about law and order and the slut girlfriend too. I can't understand why people are so evil and do the nasty things they do.... God Bless our Police officers...they need all the help they can get.

  6. As a retired (disabled), Motor Officer I can appreciate what this Officer went through and also congradulate him on his restraint not to fire at this POS. It was too late to fire and you have to consider the innocents downrange. Even though you are out there and exposed it is still the finest job a LEO can do.

    1. God bless you for your service, Jim! My brother and several friends of the family are either current or former LEOs. I have nothing but the greatest admiration and respect for our Law Enforcement Officers. And will take the side of law and order every day of the week! Take care of yourself, and I hope despite your disability, you're enjoying your retirement.
