Shocking new dashcam footage shows the moment two teenage boys mowed down a cyclist – just hours before the hit-and-run homicide of a retired police chief.

Jesus Ayala, 18, and Jzamir Keys, 16, are suspected of intentionally striking Andreas Probst, 64, while he was riding his bicycle in Las Vegas in at 6am on August 14.

Ayala was arrested the same day, accused of being the motorist behind the wheel of the 2016 Hyundai Elantra which hit the former top cop.

New video released by a local court on Monday allegedly shows the teens laughing and intentionally striking a 72-year-old man earlier that day.

The victim suffered a knee injury from the crash but survived, according to the Las Vegas Review-Jou

The footage showed the male believed to be Ayala wearing a black mask and a blue hat with the logo for the University of North Carolina.

He has a tattoo of the same symbol on his cheek. Police had previously said they also tied the teens to at least three hit-and-run incidents the same day.

They believe the slaying of Probst, a former police chief in Bell, California, ended the spree.

Ayala, 18, was arrested hours after he allegedly drove into Probst and allegedly told officers that he wouldn’t be locked up for long.

‘You think this juvenile [expletive] is gonna do some [expletive]? I’ll be out in 30 days, I’ll bet you,’ Ayala told Las Vegas cops.

He added: ‘It’s just ah, [expletive] ah, hit-and-run — slap on the wrist’, despite cops not mentioning the accident to him, according to KLAS.

His comments were caught on police body cameras that were released on Monday. Cops had only arrested him for a warrant and obstructing a police officer but later discovered the sickening footage on his phone.

They also found a second video of a Kia Soul driving into another cyclist, with the footage seemingly recorded by Ayala who appeared to be the passenger of the car.

Alaya showed no remorse for the alleged killing after being taken into custody, and has now been charged with 18 counts, including murder.

His passenger, Keys, is accused of filming the sick footage of the attack and goading the retired cop as they collided with him.

Keys was arrested and appeared with his co-accused for their arraignment in Las Vegas Justice Court in late September wearing navy blue Clark County Detention Center uniforms.

Ayala, who has a large tattoo on his right cheek, did not speak during the court appearance.

His mother said she ‘doesn’t know,’ if her son – who was 17 at the time – can be forgiven for his alleged crimes.

She previously told 8 News Now: ‘I don’t know why he did this. I don’t know if God can forgive this.’

Passenger, Jzamir Keys, 16, is accused of filming the sick footage of the attack, who goaded the retired cop as they collided with him. 

The teen is accused of intentionally striking Probst with the stolen Hyundai Elantra as he was riding his bicycle down an empty highway in the northwest of the city at around 6am on August 14 

Keys’ mother vowed that his ‘side of the story’ will be told, branding it as ‘the truth’, rather than the ‘inaccuracies the media will try to portray.’ 

During an earlier court hearing, two of Keys’ relatives cried, and one of Ayala’s female relatives also attended. 

She shielded her face and held back tears as she walked past reporters outside the courtroom afterwards, according to the Journal.

Ayala has a long criminal history in the juvenile system, according to 8 News Now, while Keys was placed in the child welfare system at eight years old.

Keys’ mother was charged with five counts of child abuse in 2016 after cops found her five children – aged two to nine – home alone without access to food, a knife left on the kitchen counter, and the house in a poor condition, according to the channel.

Probst, 64, was was fatally struck on August 14 while cycling in northwest Las Vegas. Footage filmed by the passenger shows he was intentionally killed by the teenage driver

Keys, who was detained following a police appeal for information , is believed to be the passenger who goaded the attack and filmed a sick video

At a news conference, Taylor Probst described her father — known by loved ones as ‘Andy’ — as a man of honor and integrity who worked for more than 35 years in law enforcement

Graphic video shows a dashboard view from the front seat of a vehicle approaching Probst from behind while he was riding near the curb on an otherwise traffic-free road.

Laughter and comments from inside the car are heard before Probst, wearing a red shirt and dark shorts, was struck and thrown against the windshield.

A final image from the moving car shows the retired top cop on the ground beside the curb.

Deputy Police Chief Nick Farese called the ‘intentional’ hit in a stolen vehicle and the sick video ‘a cowardly act that in my 22 years of law enforcement left me personally appalled’.

At a news conference, Taylor Probst described her father — known by loved ones as ‘Andy’ — as a man of honor and integrity who worked for more than 35 years in law enforcement.

‘We are devastated by the senseless murder of Andy,’ she said. ‘Andy’s life was robbed by two individuals who did not believe that lives of others matter.’

Probst urged the DA’s office to ‘take these crimes to the furthest extent of the law’.
