Footage from the congressionally-funded Alhurra television network shows the driver in Thursday afternoon’s Capitol Hill incident being confronted by D.C. Capitol Police outside a barrier before reversing course and fleeing police cruisers.

In the video, officers can be seen swarming the black Lexus coupe, with guns drawn pointing at the driver. The unidentified person behind the wheel flips the vehicle into reverse and withdraws from the police crowd, before leading them on a chase through several traffic circles and surrounding roads.
