New police body camera footage shows officers arresting a shooting suspect after a high-speed chase ended in a crash on the Dolphin Expressway in Miami-Dade in September.
Video obtained Tuesday by NBC6 shows the conclusion of the Sept. 29 chase that ended with the incarceration of 23-year-old Zealsino Desravines.
The video shows an officer arriving as another officer takes Desravines into custody. It also shows officers checking his bags as he stands handcuffed in front of a police car.

According to police, the incident began when Desravines shot his girlfriend’s father in Florida City during an argument over food.
Desravines fled the scene after a while in his Volkswagen Jetta, but was spotted by Miami-Dade officers who pursued him on the Florida Turnpike, an arrest report said.
Helicopter footage from NBC6 showed the Jetta traveling at high speeds, weaving through rush hour traffic on the Turnpike and then the Dolphin Expressway as officers pursued it.
The car eventually crashed into another vehicle and a street sign on the eastbound Dolphin Expressway near 22nd Avenue, where Desravines was taken into custody.
During the pursuit, Desravines threw the gun and an extended magazine out of the car, but both were recovered, the report said.
Desravines was arrested on several charges including attempted murder, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, fleeing and eluding police and attempted tampering with evidence.
