A teen is under arrest and charged with murder after allegedly recording a video where they deliberately mowed down a retired police chief in Las Vegas.
The New York Post is reporting that 64-year-old Andreas Probst, a former police chief from California, was killed after he was allegedly struck down in cold blood by two teenagers speeding down North Tenaya Way, cheering and laughing on social media as they targeted him.
Probst, who was enjoying a morning bike ride on August 14, was struck from behind.
But it’s what the teens said next on the video that was disturbing.
“Yeah, hit his ass!” encouraged the passenger, who was recording the entire video.
The Hyundai can then be seen speeding up, and the sound of glass can be heard smashing, before Probst’s body rolls to the ground.
“Damn! That [n-word] got knocked out!” said the passenger as the driver is then heard flooring the gas. “We gotta get out of here!”
Probst was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead on arrival.
“He was honestly like a ray of sunshine,” Taylor Probst said of her father. “That just bled through your life.”
“He was an amazing man, a husband,” Probst’s wife, Crystal, added. “A father, a brother.”
No further details about the teen charged with Probst’s murder have been released, and it’s not clear whether the passenger has been charged with any crime.
