Being a traffic officer can be a dangerous job. One officer in Buenos Aires had no clue the jaw-dropping incident captured on traffic cameras would ever happen to him.

A 61-year-old San Isidro woman was arrested after deciding to flee when she allegedly failed to give her car documents to an officer during a routine traffic stop.

The worst part? She kept driving while the officer held onto the front of her car.

According to The Telegraph, the officer held on for dear life for about 1,000 feet down the highway, then managed to jump off from the car. Unfortunately, he fractured a knee.
