Ninja Texas Trooper Karate Kicks Motorcyclist After High-Speed Chase

Somebody watched a little too much “Walker, Texas Ranger.” A fleet-footed state trooper dropped a surrendering motorcyclist with a leaping karate kick at the end of a high-speed chase, a stunning dash cam video revealed. The hapless rider took off after running a stop sign, and he kept going even after the run-and-gun trooper pulled alongside his bike and opened fire, shooting him in the leg, the Austin American-Statesman reported. The paper unearthed the video of the action-packed 2012 encounter while reporting on the Texas Department of Public Safety’s Wild West approach to chasing down suspects who run. Trooper Abraham Martinez joined the motorcycle pursuit while it was in progress. The rider, 25-year-old Steven Gaydos, topped 130 mph on his Suzuki 750 as he fled through one Houston-area county to another. Martinez can be heard shouting over a loudspeaker for Gaydos to pull over. When the strip club bartender refused, the trooper fired four rounds out of his window as they turned into a residential neighborhood.

He finally slowed to a stop at an intersection and raised his hand as if in surrender. He had just begun to step off the bike when Martinez, wearing his cowboy hat and boots, burst into the frame like a Chuck Norris character and delivered a flying kick. The 10-year veteran was suspended for three days without pay for the stunt, the Statesman reported.
