In Philadelphia, on Saturday, a fight between an unnamed police officer and robbery suspect Sydney Clayton was captured on video (below) by a motorist on his cell phone camera.

The Daily Mail reports that Clayton, who was reportedly on drugs, stole the officer's baton and hit him with it.

In a video that resembles a TV police show, the officer shoots Clayton, but robbery suspect still comes at the cop. Fortunately, more police arrived to restrain Clayton.

Clayton, who has 17 earlier arrests, was taken to the hospital where he remains. The police officer was also treated at the hospital.
