Hollywood made real

Whoever said that Hollywood isn't real forgot to tell the Brazilian Police.

In a video on YouTube, Brazilian Federal Police officers executed the arrest of members of an organized crime ring in grand style: by crashing their SUV (reportedly a Chevy Trailblazer) into the fleeing single-engined aircraft.

The suspects were reportedly smuggling electronics and other goods, possibly drugs, in and out of Brazil, and the cops chased their speeding plane down the runway, rammed it, and proceeded to arrest them.
