It’s getting increasingly difficult to figure out whether videos like this one are real or not.
But if the footage from this Reading, PA, cabbie’s dash cam is legit, this is simply amazing.
In the clip, a masked stick-up bandit accosts a cab driver, demanding his money, wallet, and cell phone.
As the terrified cabbie tries to comply, you can see the sweet sight of flashing red-and-blue lights through the back windshield of the cab.
The victim is understandably hysterical, and the arrest is, thankfully, uneventful.
This is what cops are talking about when they describe their work as going from zero to 60 in a heartbeat.
One minute you’re running a plate and the next—BOOM!—you’re dealing with an armed robbery in progress.
