Tractor Stealer is Tasered – level 2

31-01-2022 15:00

In Florida, a man stole a tractor and was driving it down the road. Police started to follow him because he was driving erratically.

The police asked the man to pull over. At first, he complied when the police wanted to search him, but then he became violent and began to run away. The policeman used a taser to stop him. Then he arrested him and took him to hospital.

Difficult words: erratically (unusually doing something), comply (be OK with something), search (when police check if a person has something illegal on him or her).

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