FORT WORTH — News 8 has obtained new video of a Fort Worth police chase — this time from an officer's perspective.

A camera mounted inside a squad car followed Terry Sillers' motorcycle last month. Sillers led officers on a chase after they tried to pull him over for a felony warrant.

The camera appears to show a Fort Worth officer throw a punch at the suspect after he was stopped.

The department is reviewing the arrest.

Records show the officer who made that move has at least 44 commendations during a nearly 20-year career, several for his conduct during chases.
