SPARTA, Tenn. (CBS News) -- A woman in Tennessee is suing a sheriff's department following her husband's death. Police body-camera video obtained by CBS' Nashville affiliate WTVF shows a sheriff ordering officers to "take out" a man they were chasing. 

It started in Dekalb County, Tennessee, 70 miles east of Nashville. Michael Dial lead deputies on a 50 mph chase. He was suspected of driving on a suspended license when he crossed over into White County.

That's when deputies rammed his truck and trailer, trying to force him off the road. When it didn't work, Sheriff Oddie Shoupe issued an order that his dispatcher relayed to the deputies.

"Per 59 [the sheriff] take him out by any means necessary including deadly force."
