Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy and his camera crew were filming a segment for his show “One Bite Pizza Reviews” in downtown Chicago when the camera crew caught what appeared to be a carjacking in progress.

The incident took place in South Loop outside of “Art of Pizza,” the subject of Portnoy’s segment.

According to NBC Chicago, the owner of the car flagged down officers in a Chicago Police Department (CPD) patrol car, which was captured in the video uploaded to Twitter by Barstool Sports.

In the video, the suspect can be seen speeding away from the curb and fleeing the police officers. As the suspect pulled out, he appeared to scrape against the police car.

“Did that guy get carjacked?” Portnoy asked on camera. “That guy just got carjacked?” (RELATED: Barstool Sports Founder Answers Tucker’s Burning Question: ‘How Dumb Is Roger Goodell?)

“I think the guy just hit the police car,” another person present said on the recording.

CPD told Fox Chicago, that the crime wasn’t a “vehicular hijacking,” which is classified as the theft of an automobile via force. The crime was instead a “motor vehicle theft,” according to CPD, which means the car was stolen non-violently.

No injuries were reported, and the incident remains under investigation by CPD as of Saturday.
