Pensacola Florida Police Officer rams robbery suspects truck twice in high-speed chase

Police car rams robbery suspects truck twice in high-speed chase
Early Thursday, Pensacola Police officers became involved in a high speed chase after receiving word of a robbery where the victim had been shot.
Two officers, in an unmarked police car, spotted the truck the suspects used to leave scene of the robbery and began the pursuit.
The officers used a patrol car to ram the truck twice, with the entire incident captured on the patrol cars dashcam.

Police said they were determined to stop the driver, later identified as 26-year-old Marvin Watts.
He is accused of robbing McKinley Lanier, 47, of Pensacola, outside a Circle K convenience store, by jerking a gold chain off his neck, then shooting Lanier twice in the left knee.

The bumping technique used by the police was successful and both Watts and a passenger in his truck, identified as Fred Taylor, 24, of Pensacola, were captured and arrested.
The two men, who are facing several criminal charges, are now being held in jail.
