VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. -- A trio of horses helped sheriff's deputies in Florida saddle a fleeing suspect.

Aerial footage captured the chase in Volusia County early Wednesday morning.

In the video you can see the suspect drive his vehicle across a lawn in a residential neighborhood.

He then hops a fence and begins to run through a horse pasture.

Three horses spot the man and take off after him.

At one point, the lead horse appears to kick the man, throwing him to the ground, before it runs away. The suspect then jumps back over the fence and is quickly apprehended by sheriff's deputies.

The man now faces a number of criminal charges including fleeing and attempting to elude, resisting arrest and violation of probation.
