SANTA FE N.M. (KRQE) - Dash camera video helps tell the story of a man who can't seem to stay out of jail.
The Santa Fe County Adult Detention Center is one place David Bourassa has seen many times before. Bourassa, 33, has more than 30 arrests over the last 10 years.
On Friday night a chase began after police received reports of a fight at a Santa Fe supermarket involving a suspect armed with a knife.
Turns out Bourassa was the suspect, but he did not go down easily.
"On two occasions, the male turned and pointed his fingers as if he was making a motion of a gun," Santa Fe Police Department Deputy Chief William Johnson said.
A witness described the getaway vehicle as an 1980s or 90s conversion van. Santa Fe police officers stopped a van at the corner of Pacheco and Siringo, and woman came out telling police Bourassa and the knife could still be inside.
Police tried to get Bourassa to surrender.
After a half hour of shouting orders, dash cam video shows Bourassa taking off on foot running into a field until officers shot him with a bean-bag shotgun.
"The bean bag grazed the suspect's leg, and he continued to run and later slipped and fell," Johnson said. "The officers put him into custody without further incident."
Once again Bourassa was headed back to jail charged this time with resisting or obstructing an officer. It was arrest No. 34.
Bourassa's past charges cover a wide range from drunken driving to battery and assault, drug possession to failing to appear in court.
He is also charged with failing to appear in two separate criminal cases and failing to comply with conditions of release in a recent DWI case.
Police did not find a weapon.
