Tractor Stealer is Tasered – level 1

31-01-2022 15:00

In Florida, a man steals a tractor. He drives it down the road. He drives erratically. Police see his driving. They drive behind him. Then, the police ask the man to stop. At first, he does as they tell him. Then he becomes violent. He starts running away.

One policeman uses a taser. It hits the man. It makes him fall down. The policeman arrests him. Then he takes him to hospital.

Difficult words: erratically (not normal), violent (a violent person wants to hurt or kill you), taser (an electric weapon that police use to stop people without killing them).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
