A Virginia man has given an example of how not to run from the police.

Police released dashcam footage of the drunk driver getting hit by his own car as he got out and tried to escape.

Fairfax County Police said the incident happened at about 1:00am on Sunday morning (local time) as they tried pulling the man over for an equipment violation.

In the video, 30-year-old Isaac Bonsu is seen jumping out of his car and starting to run off.

He is then immediately run over by his own car as it continues to drive around a corner.

Police said Bonsu neglected to put the car in park in his haste.

Officers said the man was unharmed and is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and possession of marijuana, among other violations.
