A northern Virginia man is facing charges including driving while intoxicated and possessing marijuana after a police pursuit in which he ended up running over himself, the AP reports. Fairfax County Police released dashboard video of Tuesday's incident in which 30-year-old Isaac Bonsu is seen getting out of his car on a residential street in Alexandria, a Washington, DC, suburb. But Bonsu apparently forgot to put the car in park. The video shows him running in front of the car and being struck. Bonsu gets up and continues running. Police say they caught him, unharmed, after a brief foot chase. Police say they initially pulled Bonsu over Sunday morning because of an apparent equipment violation. Charges against Bonsu include a third-time DWI, felony hit-and-run, and illegal window tint. (Read more weird crimes stories.)
