Buffalo Grove police have released dash cam video from a crash last May where a driver put his car in reverse and backed into a squad car. Seventy-year-old Henry Raskin was stopped for speeding. Raskin was apparently angry at being pulled over when he threw his vehicle in reverse, sped backwards and slammed into the patrol car. A tire from the car smashed through the windshield near the officer's head.

Raskin was convicted of reckless driving, fined $220 and ordered to attend a traffic safety course.
