ORLANDO,F la. - Run for your life! An Orlando police officer was nearly assaulted -- by a swan.

OPD on Friday tweeted video of the officer, who was on bike patrol, riding away from the swan, which chased him out of an area of Lake Eola Park.

The incident was caught on camera, prompting OPD to take to Twitter.
