TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Virginia man got more than just his pride hurt during a DUI stop.

The Fairfax Police Department said the man was run over by his own car after jumping out of the moving vehicle and trying to run from one of its officers.

"Our officers tried to pull a man over," Fairfax County Police said in a Facebook post. "He sped off, then got out of his car to escape, but forgot to put it in park."

Authorities said the man, who is facing a third-offense DUI charge and a "long list" of other charges, was not seriously injured in the incident on Sunday, March 4.
