Driver Flees Car Crash Despite Sledgehammer Being Swung At Him

Police confirmed Sunday afternoon that there was a hit-and run crash on Northeast 36th Street and Biscayne Boulevard in Miami. During his initial attempt to run, he was approached by two people trying to stop the driver from leaving by shouting and banging on the window. Officials said the unidentified driver had been arrested and there were no injuries. Cell phone video shows the driver reversing and trying to leave the scene.

The driver of the Infiniti eventually drove completely away from the scene, but police officers said that they later apprehended the 25-year-old, identified as Maxwell Oleg Lagutenko.

Eyewitness Anthony Jiminez, who saw the drama told abc10: 'You have a crash, you stop. Another SUV can be seen making a U-turn and following close behind.

Right away, we see a couple of people get in front of the auto and tell Lagutenko to stop while trying to open his doors. Moments before, a driver got out of his white minivan and began slamming the SUV with a sledgehammer, breaking every window of the vehicle. They attempt to pull the man from his vehicle, and one even screams, "Don't move".

Coutinho backs Neymar to return to Barcelona
Coutinho echoed the sentiments of Ivan Rakitic who had earlier said he would welcome Neymar back "right now". Barca boss Ernesto Valverde has since labelled the rumours "a fantasy".

But the driver would not pull over, so the cop backed off because of the Miami PD's no-chase policy for non-violent crimes.

The men were intent on detaining the driver because he is accused of causing this wreck, involving several vehicles. The police said the man was found and taken into custody.

Lagutenko was later arrested and faces charges for leaving the scene of an accident, eluding police and reckless driving.
