Wild Traffic Stop Caught On Camera

Posted: Updated:

A routine traffic stop in Taos, New Mexico, turns into a wild back-and-forth between police and a family packed into a minivan.

A New Mexico state police officer says he pulled over Oriana Ferrell's minivan, which had her five children in it for speeding, on Oct. 28.

Video shows the two get into an argument before the officer tells her to turn off her car and walks back to his vehicle.

However, the woman allegedly drives off before being pulled over again by the same officer.

This time, he yells for Ferrell to get out of the car, and when she doesn't, he tries to pull her out.

Later on, she is out of the car talking to the officer when she decides to walk away.

The officer chases after her and that is when her 14-year-old son is accused of going after the policeman.

The two have a short fight before the officer draws his Taser sending the boy back to the car.

With everyone back in the car, Ferrell allegedly decides to flee, but not before more officers arrive on scene with one shooting at the minivan. She then allegedly leads police on a high-speed chase before giving up in front of a hotel.

She and her son are currently facing charges.

The officers involved are being investigated for their actions.
