A man has been arrested in Texas after driving his car into a lake and trying to swim away from officers following a police chase.
The suspect, who has been named by local media as 40-year-old Daniel Basham, had been involved in a hit-and-run.
Arlington Police Department pursued the suspect, who was in an SUV, and captured footage of him driving into a lake.
He was then seen throwing himself out of the car window and attempting to swim away.
He reportedly tried to reach the other side, but got tired and turned back to the jetty where officers were waiting to arrest him.
Basham has been charged with evading arrest, driving while intoxicated and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Arlington Police Chief Will Johnson tweeted: "Bad guy was involved in a hit and run before running from us. Please don't drive impaired. He's facing evading arrest, DWI & drug charges."
