This is a perfect example of how not to serve a warrant. Basic law enforcement training advises you to never stick your arms through the window of a running vehicle with a person behind the wheel. You never know what that person's intentions are. When serving warrants it is always beneficial to have backup (other officers to assist) as the person you are serving the warrant on has shown he has no regard for the law. As for shooting at the tires, that police officer does not have any control of where those rounds will go if the ricochet off of the concrete or asphalt of the road surface. If you do not have the manpower to serve the warrant as safely as possible, sometimes discretion is the better part of valor. In other words serve it another day when it can be done correctly. To justify the use of deadly force because a police officer handles the situation unprofessionally is criminal. The use of a firearm is considered deadly force.
