Body cam footage shows Fort Worth officers rescuing robbery suspect from burning car

Body cam footage captured Fort Worth officer Jared Lake and Cpl. Collins rescuing a burglary suspect from a burning car.

Officer Lake was with another officer, Brandon Latham, when they spotted the vehicle of three burglary suspects. A high speed chase began when the driver didn't pull over. The chase maxed out at 120 mph before the suspects ran a red light at 100 mph and slammed into another car.

The car caught on fire as Lathan apprehended the driver, taking him into custody. One suspect ran, leaving the third unconscious and trapped inside the burning car. Footage shows Lake trying to pry open the damaged passenger-side door to no avail.


Collins came to Lake's aid and together they pulled the unconscious suspect through the car window. The suspect began to regain consciousness as the officers dragged him to safety.

All three suspects were arrested and face robbery charges. The driver also faces charges of evading arrest.
