A typical patrol in Canada was anything but and it was all captured on dashcam video.

A meteor is seen blazing through the night sky over norther Alberta.

It passes almost directly in front of the cruiser of a Royal Mounted police officer.

The officer said he "freaked out" when he saw the meteor and spent the rest of the night scanning not only the streets but the skies as well.
