The moment police in Florida swerved to knock a biker off of his motorcycle during a high-speed pursuit on a highway before tackling him to the ground was captured in a shocking footage over the weekend.

In two videos uploaded to social media on Sunday, several units from the Florida Highway Patrol are seen pursuing a motorcyclist at high-speed near Exit 81 along Florida’s Turnpike, in Delray Beach.

The incident appeared to happen during the annual West Palm Beach Breast Cancer Awareness Ride Out which took place in the area yesterday afternoon.

As a shocked procession of bikers watch on, one FHP patrol is seen approaching the rear right flank of the fleeing rider, before veering sharply to the left and crashing into their back tire.

As the biker attempts to get up, an officer is seen charging towards them, leaping over the bike head-first and tackling the suspect to back down to the ground in mid-air.

The dramatic move was captured by another rider from a second angle, who was heard exclaiming ¿oh s**t!¿ as the officer athletically sprang over the vehicle and pinned the rider down.

The apparent PIT maneuver knocks the bike out from under the rider, causing both the suspect and vehicle to skid across the road into a passing lane and crash into a wall.

As the biker attempts to get up, an officer is seen charging towards them, leaping over the bike head-first and tackling the suspect back down to the ground in mid-air.

The dramatic move was captured by another rider from a second angle, who was heard exclaiming ‘oh s**t!’ as the officer athletically sprang over the vehicle and pinned the rider down.

The officer is seen jostling with the biker on the asphalt before two other officers rush to his side and help to restrain the suspect. The video then abruptly ends.

It’s not immediately clear why the police were pursuing the motorcyclist or whether any injuries were sustained in the incident.

According to its website, FHP officers are permitted to use precision immobilization techniques – or PIT Maneuvers – when Troopers in the pursuit determine that the fleeing vehicle must be stopped immediately to safeguard life and preserve public safety.

A spokesperson for the Florida Highway Patrol has not yet returned a DailyMail.com request for additional information.

The two bikers who captured the chase on video are also yet to return comment requests.

The video has already drawn significant criticism on social media, with dozens accusing the officers of using excessive force.

‘This is insanely illegal and horrific. Like it makes me sick to my stomach,’ one viewer wrote on Instagram.

‘That cop bouta get charged criminally for ramming that biker. Uncalled for bro,’ added another.
