Man tries to stop hit and run with a sledgehammer


As he crossed Biscayne Boulevard and Northeast 36th Street, he crashed into two more vehicles.

The latter charge came after an officer pursued Lagutenko for a short time but cut off the pursuit because of the city's no chase policy in the event of non-violent crimes, according to the arrest report obtained by NBC.

A hit-and-run driver's auto was attacked by an angry mob who battered it with sledgehammers after he tried to flee the scene of a huge crash.

The driver leaves the scene and is then blocked by a black SUV around the corner from the crash.

Then, a man wearing a dark shirt, khaki cargo shorts and black shoes with white socks gets out of a auto and uses a sledgehammer or mallet to smash the SUV's windows. "(Don't move!"). The man stood near the wheels of the vehicle and the driver then proceeded to accelerate.

"That is insane. You have a crash, you stop", witness Anthony Jimenez told WPLG-TV.


The men were intent on detaining the driver because he is accused of causing this wreck, involving several vehicles.

Cellphone video taken after those crashes showed multiple drivers getting out of their cars and trying to stop Lagutenko from leaving.

Miami police said there were no injuries at the scene and despite the man's attempt to flee he was taken into custody.

But cops warned others not to repeat the actions of the vigilante drivers who ganged up on the SUV should they find themselves in a similar situation, and dial 911 instead.

Officers told Local10 that they don't encourage drivers or other people to try to stop someone from leaving the scene of an accident.
