Two individuals were gravely hurt in an accident between a nude guy and a Las Vegas police officer that broke out in the middle of a busy road. The man then stole the police officer’s patrol car.
At around 11:15 p.m. on Tuesday, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department received a call about a nude male who seemed to be having a mental health crisis in the area of Buffalo Drive and Blue Diamond Road. An LVMPD officer is seen battling with the nude guy, subsequently identified as 29-year-old Clyde Cabulisan, in the center of an intersection in video that was recorded by a passing motorist and acquired by KLAS.
During their wrestling match, Cabulisan once knocked off the officer’s cap and pushed him to the ground.
The footage then seems to show the man getting into the marked Ford F-150 and driving off while the lights are still flashing.
There’s a nude guy and a policeman. Photographer Kyle Even, who documented the confrontation, told KLAS, “I assumed he was going to be handcuffed and thrown to the floor.”
He expressed his gratitude that the officer was not hit by a car.
Cabulisan, having hijacked the police car, fled north on Rainbow and pursued the authorities for almost five kilometers, they said.
After that, he crossed the meridian, sped into oncoming traffic, ran a red light at Hacienda Avenue, and collided with a Ford Explorer’s passenger side.
According to authorities, the Explorer’s driver, a 34-year-old woman, and its passenger, a 43-year-old man, both sustained serious injuries and were transferred to University Medical Center’s Trauma Unit.
In the collision, Cabulisan also sustained serious injuries. He was apprehended and subsequently sent to the hospital.
According to court papers, he is charged with four crimes: grand larceny of a motor vehicle, battery on a protected person, robbery, and defying a peace officer and endangering persons or property.
On Thursday, Cabulisan is expected to appear in court.
