'I Will Shoot You If You Do': Man With Gun on Seat Flees Tense Traffic Stop

An Ohio police department has released footage of the moment officers realized a man they pulled over had a gun on the seat next to him during a traffic stop near Genoa Township on December 2.

Police said the man was “uncooperative” and “refused to obey commands to exit the vehicle” when pulled over on I-17.

In this footage, Officer Mike Sigman orders the man to get out of the car. “You’ve got a gun right there,” he says.

In a tense exchange, Officer Sigman warns the man he would deploy a K9 against him. “I will shoot you if you do,” the man replies. He then fled the scene and was later arrested after a “lengthy pursuit,” police said. Credit: Genoa Township Police Department via Storyful
