No the YouTube video is of when they first went after the guy on the motorcycle. You can see him take off on the bike and then you see the motorcycle cop and the cop car put their lights on and take off after the guy on the motorcycle. The cop car was making a u - turn to go after the guy

I'm not playing the blame game,because he ran and that's it,but movies and television have an influence on people who have a little bit of daredevil in them to start with.Those Fast & Furious movies even make me want to burn rubber.
