SACRAMENTO — The search for a man who fled from Regional Transit police ended with a dramatic capture caught on camera.

Sacramento police officers had a perimeter set up at Bidwell Way and Freeport Boulevard in the Land Park area on Monday evening after the suspect, Michael Kennedy, 19, allegedly fled from a police officer at a nearby light rail station.

Kennedy hopped over the front fence of a home, grabbed a road bike leaning up against the porch and rode toward CBS13 photojournalist James Taylor. Just as Kennedy reached Taylor, he veered away from an approaching Sacramento police officer who tackled him from the bike and a struggled ensued.
