Running from the police is never a good idea, even if the officer is not as fit as he should be.

The criminal makes a clean getaway, but decides to do some gloating, and even runs backwards at one point during the chase.

I guess he didn't realize that the cop had pretty good aim with his taser gun.

Sometimes it seems like criminals commit crimes that are worse than the punishment they could ever receive.  This is one of those cases.
