A controversy erupted this week after dash cam video surfaced showing a police officer running down a suspect with his police cruiser. 

KOLD's Som Lisaius reported on "The Kelly File" tonight that the suspect in the video was armed with a stolen rifle and a box of ammunition from a local Walmart. 

He explained that he was roaming around the streets of Marana, Arizona and not listening to the commands of responding police.

Police were worried that if the suspect entered a local business, he could potentially take hostages or potentially something worse. 

Marana Police Chief Terry Rozema told Lisaius that it wasn't an easy decision for the officer to ram the suspect. 

Rozema said that the suspect was released from the hospital two days later and has been booked in jail.
