A deputy rolls up on the scene of a traffic crash, never dreaming his dash camera would catch this: a loose bull running a fellow deputy down.
16 years Sgt. Lalonde has been an Alachua County Sheriff's Deputy.
"The bull was obviously agitated, it had just been in a wreck. I knew when that bull fell when he stood up the way he looked, that he wasn't happy."
Cops knew they were rolling into a crash scene. It wasn't clear that a livestock trailer was ripped open after a blown tire and crash.
It got really clear for trooper Matt Simmons as he dove over the hood of his cruiser to get away. Lalonde is just glad the upset bull didn't have horns.
"He actually contacted me in my left hip, if he had horns he would have hit me about mid area."
The sergeant says this settles it for what he hopes is a once in a lifetime experience.
"I can check rodeo clown off my bucket list."
Eventually the bull ran off the interstate and deputies had to put it down with several gunshots.
Lalonde says it was so close to an exit with restaurants and people out and about, they couldn't risk the bull doing this to anybody else.
We had no other choice but to euthanize him for the safety of not only ourselves but the public.
