VIDEO: Carjacker Attempts To Fight Off Fur Missile With Umbrella, Fails

Daniel Medina's umbrella was no match for the San Diego County Sheriff's Department's K9.

San Diego, CA – A suspect in a stolen vehicle unsuccessfully attempted to fight a police K9 off with an umbrella after it came barreling through the window of the stolen vehicle he had been driving and latched onto his hand (video below).

The incident began at approximately 10 p.m. on Monday, when the California Highway Patrol (CHP) received a report of a hit-and-run collision in Carlsbad, KFMB reported.

Troopers responded to the scene, which was located on Interstate 5 near La Costa Avenue, to discover that a truck involved in the crash had been reported as stolen nearly 100 miles away in Los Angeles County.

The suspect, later identified as 42-year-old Daniel Medina, fled the scene on foot prior to the troopers’ arrival, KFMB reported.

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department (SDCSD) responded to the area to help search for the suspect, and later spotted a Chrysler minivan traveling without its headlights activated.

As they followed the speeding minivan onto Interstate 5, a robbery victim called police to report that someone had just broken into his home and forced him to hand over the keys to his Chrysler minivan, KFMB reported.

Medina led police on a pursuit down Interstate 5 and onto Interstate 805, where he drove at speeds of over 100 miles per hour before he drove over tire-flattening spike strips that officers had deployed on the roadway, the San Diego Patch reported.

Medina eventually began heading the wrong way on Interstate 15, but stopped in the middle of the lane near the El Cajon Boulevard exit, KGTV reported.

He then refused to comply with officer’s commands to exit the stolen vehicle.

SDCSD deputies ultimately fired projectiles to break out the side windows of the van and deployed a K9 to apprehend Medina, KFMB reported.

Video footage showed the K9 as he barreled through the rear driver’s side window.

A moment later, Medina threw the front driver’s door open and emerged from the van with an umbrella gripped in his right hand.

His other hand was in the K9’s jaws.

Medina repeatedly swatted at the K9 with the umbrella, but it had no effect on the determined pooch.

He also appeared to strike the K9 multiple times with his fist.

The suspect ultimately opted to walk over to police with the dog dangling from his hand so they could save him, the video showed.

The K9 continued to clamp down on Medina as officers took him to the ground and secured him in handcuffs, the video showed.

The K9 was not injured during the incident, KGTV reported.
