A man “landed on his feet” after he was thrown from a car while running away from police, the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office said.

According to Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill, a suspected car thief tried to hit a deputy head-on when attempting to escape.

Unfortunately, he was “pitted off the road and ejected” from the vehicle, Hill said in a Twitter post. The car flipped over and the suspect was able to land on his feet. He was then arrested, Hill said.

AJC has reached out for more information regarding the incident.
