    Newly released dashcam video shows an Escambia County deputy intentionally ramming his police cruiser into his ex-wife’s home.

    The incident happened last November, but the state attorney’s office recently made the video public.

    Dep. Timothy Taylor can be see in video reversing out of the drive way as a woman stood in the doorway of the home before going inside and shutting the door.

    Taylor parked the cruiser in the middle of the street for about a minute before accelerating full-speed toward the home. Taylor slammed into the front door as broken chunks of the home’s exterior fell onto the hood of the police cruiser.

    Taylor admitted to being under the influence of prescription drugs at the time of the crash, and said that he tried to commit suicide because of marital problems, according to a WPMI report.

    Taylor pleaded no contest to DUI and criminal mischief charges, and was sentenced to two years of probation.
