Man in Handcuffs Steals Chicago Police Car
Via the Chicago Sun-Times:
The CPD in action!
Handcuffs didn’t stop a man, who had just been arrested, from making off with a Chicago Police squad last week, authorities say.
The incident happened around 12:45 p.m., after police arrested 42-year-old Marquette Fisher during a traffic stop in the 4100 block of West Adams Street, said Chicago Police Officer Ron Gaines, a department spokesman.
While he was handcuffed in the backseat of a squad car, he managed to get his hands in front of him, jumped into the front seat and drove off, Gaines said. He left the car a short distance away and was later arrested. . .
