Caught on tape: A Florida sheriff's deputy pulls over a shoplifting suspect. But, as soon as he attempts to handcuff the driver, things go horribly wrong.

The deputy's dashcam records the incident as the officer struggles with the suspect, who manages to get back into his car and speed off -- dragging the deputy on the ground.

The officer falls, gets up and runs back to his patrol car. The chase is on. Police caught the driver, who is now behind bars.

The deputy is OK.
