'Blitzen Made a Break for It': Pennsylvania Cop Almost Gets Run Over by Deer on Highway

Members of the Exeter Township Police Department in Pennsylvania were caught off-guard when a deer ran straight toward an officer on December 20 as police were attending an incident, video shared by the department shows.

This clip shows the deer running toward officers on Route 422.

The department joked on Facebook, "ETPD units were dispatched to an incident on the West Shore Bypass (Route 422) that may or may not have involved Santa Claus himself. When they arrived, Blitzen made a break for it and almost ran over an officer. Be safe out there friends. The song “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” was probably a true story."
