SALT LAKE CITY – A video recently posted to YouTube shows Utah officers chasing a man who might be the most evasive suspect ever.

In the video posted by Rick Heaps, officers appear to use a Taser on the suspect, Steven Carsello, a few times yet he still gets up and runs after each shock.

Carsello ran to a truck nearby, jumped in the back and then tried to negotiate with officers for a few minutes.

When more officers arrived, Carsello apologized and seemed to surrender while climbing out of the truck.

But when he got to the pavement, he crawled underneath the vehicle in one last escape attempt.

Officers said the chase started when Carsello starting fighting with another man near 200 W. and 200 S.

Salt Lake City Police said Carsello removed an antenna from a parked car and started chasing the other unnamed man around a parking lot.

According to officers, several witnesses tried to intervene until Carsello threatened them with a broken bottle.

Carsello then fought with officers and that is when they Tased him.

Carsello could now face charges for aggravated assault/criminal mischief and resisting arrest.
