Footage shows teen driver appear to deliberately hit and kill retired police chief Andreas Probst

A retired California police chief appeared to be deliberately mowed down and killed while riding his bike in Las Vegas by a laughing teenage driver whose pal can be heard saying “Yeah, hit his ass,” video of the incident shows.

The unidentified 17-year-old driver of the Hyundai was arrested by police soon afterward, The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

The teen has since been charged with murder, after police discovered a video posted to social media that allegedly showed him deliberately hitting the man.

This weekend, the shocking footage went viral online, showing the driver asking his pals “ready?” as the passenger films, laughing.

“Yeah, hit his ass,” he tells the driver before plowing into the retiree.

The disturbing clip begins with the passengers cursing at other cars as they speed by on the North Tenaya Way, near West Centennial Parkway.

The video shows the car approaching a man in red riding a bicycle on the side of the road from behind. With his friends’ encouragement, the driver pulls into the bike lane behind him, honks his horn, and deliberately smashes directly into his back tire with a loud bang, sending the cyclist flying.

The passenger films the man lying helplessly on the side of the road behind the vehicle.

“Damn that n—a got knocked out!” the passenger says as the driver can be heard stepping on the gas.

Probst was taken to University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, according to the Review Journal.

The 17-year-old was arrested the same day as the Probst’s death on suspicion of hit and run. He was later charged with murder because of the video, though the date the charges were set was not clear.
