This is the moment a hapless motorcyclist crashes into a cop car at high speed and manages to stay on his feet after the collision before police batter him with a truncheon and arrest him.
The incident was filmed in the town of Altai in the far-eastern Kazakh region named East Kazakhstan Region after officers tried to detain the biker who allegedly ignored their calls to pull over.
In the CCTV footage, several police vehicles are seen driving through the residential area moments before a cop gets out of one car and runs to intercept the suspect.

The officer appears to hit the biker with a truncheon and the suspect rides over a barrier and is momentarily unbalanced.
Before the motorcyclist can change course, he crashes into the side of a parked police vehicle and somehow remains on his feet.
Meanwhile, the police officer runs over to him and starts whacking the biker with his truncheon.
Colleagues rush to assist the officer and they appear to roughly detain the suspect on the ground before leading him away.
Local media did not mention if the biker committed an offence before ignoring the police’s calls to pull over.
The local authorities have yet to comment on the alleged rough treatment that appears to take place during the man’s arrest.
