It may not have been a criminal, but this deer did all it could to avoid a police car in Knoxville, Iowa -- flying over top of it. And it was all caught on tape.

The flying deer is still the talk of the police department in the small Marion County town of approximately 7,700 residents.

After jumping the car, the deer could be seen scattering behind a house.
