Deer slams into police cruiser with a twist

A Kentucky police officer had an extremely close encounter with a deer. But, it appears the deer was not seriously hurt.

According to a post on the Kenton County Police Department's Facebook page, an officer came across a large deer while driving this past weekend.

The officer says the deer quote "performed a triple axel" over the hood of the cruiser.

The deer appears to brush it off then runs away.

The officer was not hurt, but the cruiser was damaged.
