Dash cam footage of an Eden Prairie Police Officer accidentally firing his gun at a suspect from June 2015 was released for public view. 

Police work can be very stressful, definitely during a high speed chase. This incident happened on June 20, 2015. Sergeant Lonnie Soppeland was pursuing Matthew Hovland-Knase at a high speed chase.

When Hovland-Knase pulled the motorcycle over, Soppeland emerged from his squad car with his gun drawn and accidentally fired it. The bullet went into Hovland-knase's arm and instantly said "I'm bleeding...Please help me." Soppeland immediately runs over to help and wraps up the bleeding arm.  It actually turned out to be a super polite Minnesota-nice exchange.

Hovland-Knase was convicted of fleeing an officer and  Sergeant Soppeland told police investigators that he'd had firearm training just few weeks earlier. With his adrenaline pumping, Soppeland drew his gun, muscle memory took over, and he shot. You can also see the raw footage dashcam from Fox9 below.
