Driver flees scene on roof of passing car

A 24-year-old Milwaukee man faces multiple charges after getting involved in a crash, and fleeing the scene, riding on the roof of a car, and being arrested at gunpoint. The pullover and arrest were caught on dashcam video. When a driver slowed down to avoid hitting the man, the man grabbed the passenger side of the vehicle and attempted to enter it. The man jumped onto the roof of the car and held onto the luggage rack; the entire time trying to get into the vehicle by kicking and punching the sunroof. While traveling at full freeway speed, the man was eventually able to break a small window by the rear passenger door. A River Hills police officer stopped the vehicle near Mequon Road, ordered the 24-year-old man off the vehicle at gunpoint, and arrested him with help from Bayside officer. The man faces charges of reckless driving, hit-and-run misdemeanor, operating while intoxicated, criminal damage to property and felony recklessly endangering safety. Video Here
