Dramatic video released today by the NOPD gives you a mounted officer's-eye view of a chase through the French Quarter.

The New Orleans Advocate reports a GoPro camera mounted on Sgt. Daniel Scanlan shows the chase of a suspect believed to be carrying a firearm on October 19. 

"C'mon, let's go, c'mon!," Scanlan says as he urges horse JJ into action, then hollering "move!" and "look out!" as he pursues the suspect down Bourbon Street.

Police eventually arrested Terrell Spears and booked him on a charge of possession of a firearm by a felon and flight from an officer.
