"This guy is driving my dad's car," one of the boys says from inside the truck. "He's not my dad."

The deputy attempts to get the suspect to step out of the vehicle so that they can "figure this out," but the man hesitates, insisting that he isn't at fault and that if he leaves the truck, the officer will "punch" him.

Moments later, the frantic father finally catches up with them and confirms the driver is the man that stole his vehicle and sped off with his children, prompting the deputy to more firmly pull on the suspect's arm and tell him to get out of the vehicle.

Following another few seconds of hesitation, the Florida deputy is finally able to coax him to exit the driver's seat so that he can arrest him.
