Posted at 9:35 AM, Apr 27, 2017

(WESH) Police in West Melbourne struggled with a fleeing suspect after a high-speed chase Tuesday night.

Police body-camera video showed the dramatic capture.

It began as a traffic stop. The man in the car had been driving erratically, police said, and would not exit his vehicle.

The recording shows the officer trying to pull the man out of the car. The man instead puts the car in gear and drives off, forcing the officer to break his grip.

Police gave chase because they say he was endangering the lives of others drivers.

Jorge Rosado-Strobel finally stopped near his home.

Still uncooperative, officers used a Taser. 

He's charged with aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer and fleeing and eluding.
