Caught On Camera: Sacramento Cop Tackles Suspect Fleeing On Bicycle

SACRAMENTO (KPIX 5) — A Sacramento area man wanted on outstanding warrants was tackled by a police officer while attempting to escape on a bicycle. Michael Kennedy, 19 had allegedly fled Regional Transit police, leading to a police search Monday evening.

CBS 13 cameras caught the dramatic takedown after Kennedy hopped a fence, grabbed a bicycle leaning against a home’s front porch, and tried to evade officers.

See the full reports and complete raw video on the CBS 13 website.

When Kennedy veered away from an approaching Sacramento police officer, the officer tackled Kennedy, and a struggle ensued.

Kennedy was booked for outstanding warrants, fleeing from police, burglary and felony assault on a police officer.

Those warrants were for offenses involving the taking of a vehicle. The warrant was issued in December, more than two months after his sentencing, for failure to comply with his jail term.

The light rail station is located about a block away from where Kennedy was arrested.
