Britain’s Telegraph newspaper reports the inspector’s ride started when a 61-year-old woman took off from a traffic stop.

The inspector hung on for about 1,000 feet before tumbling off the hood in an intersection, the newspaper reports.

The man reportedly fractured his knee from the fall.

Police later caught up with the car and arrested the driver for attempted murder, according to The Telegraph.
