WATCH Dashcam video shows police officer intentionally crash SUV into ex-wife's home

Harrowing dashcam video of a Florida police officer intentionally plowing a police SUV into his ex-wife's home was released this week.

In video from the vehicle, which Timothy Taylor was driving in November 2016, he backs out of the driveway of his ex-wife's home, waits for a car to pass and then accelerates full force into the front door of the house.

He resigned from the Escambia County Sheriff's Department after the incident.

A woman entered the home and closed the door just moments before he crashed into it. It's unclear whether she is his ex-wife, but police said the woman was not injured.

The Milton, Florida, police told ABC affiliate WEAR that Taylor, 57, stabbed himself before the crash. He told police he tried to kill himself because of marital problems.

He pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor DUI charge and two counts of criminal mischief relating to the crash. He received two years of probation, WEAR reported. He paid restitution for the more than $10,000 in damage to the police vehicle and $45,000 in damage to the house.

The officer called out of work that morning after taking Xanax and saying he was unable to drive, according to reports.
