Police body camera footage from a fugitive suspect being tasered on a busy interstate before being fatally run over has been made public by Colorado authorities.

On February 18, sheriffs apprehended Brent Allen Thompson, 28, of Loveland. He gave them a false name, which they verified was a lie by running it through their system before confronting him.

Thompson fled across the I-25 while being chased by two officers, and when they caught up with him, they found drugs in his car. Thompson jumped the fence by the side of the road and ran across the grass separating the two lanes. Deputy Lorenzo Lujan tasered him when he crossed the second barricade to return to the road.

Lujan and his coworker pulled Thompson off the road, and they then began performing CPR until an ambulance arrived. One of the EMTs thought he saw Thompson’s eyes flutter, but he was unable to find a pulse. Thompson passed away in a hospital.

The Larimer County District Attorney’s Office’s declaration last week that Lujan won’t face any legal action outraged the Thompson family.

Gordon McLaughlin, the district attorney, stated that after an investigation and review of Colorado law, it was found that there was “no reasonable likelihood of success” in proving beyond a reasonable doubt that Deputy Lorenzo Lujan was criminally responsible for his attempt to have Brent Thompson arrested.

The family announced that it would file a lawsuit against the Larimer County sheriffs on Wednesday. The family’s lawyer, Siddhartha Rathod, declared that the video was being made public in order to record what happened. Rathod characterized Lujan’s actions as reckless and irrational.
