Crime dog, meet the crime horses.
The Volusia County Sheriff's Office said that Dominic Maultsby, 29, was sought by police on Wednesday after officers on patrol noticed him driving a vehicle with a tag light out that had left the license plate illegible.
When deputies tried to pull Maultsby over in Deland, he made a U-turn and drove away at a high rate of speed, evading cops until officers eventually used a spike strip to disable his car, WKMG reported.
After abandoning the vehicle, Maultsby took off on foot and eventually made his way into a horse field.
That was a mistake.
In a video from a helicopter released by the sheriff's office, a man identified as Maultsby can be seen being chased by the three horses and then trying to climb a fence before falling down.
“Jumped over a fence. Horse just chased him down,” the pilot is heard saying on the video.
Deputies arrested him shortly after he left the field. The 29-year-old was charged with resisting without violence, two counts of fleeing and attempting to elude, driving while license suspended and violation of probation reference to aggressive battery on a law enforcement officer, according to jail records.
The co-owner of one of the horses, Brenda Heartz, told FOX35 that eight and a half-year-old Shiloh is known to be feisty and aggressive, but not really a crime fighter.
“He would probably never hurt anybody," she told the televisions station.
