Cuffed Woman Steals Cop Car and Leads Officers on High-Speed Chase

A handcuffed woman stole a cop car and led officers on a high-speed chase near Pittsburgh.

Roxanne Rimer, 27, was arrested for allegedly stealing earrings from a store when she crawled from the backseat of the police cruiser through a window in car’s partition and sped off, ABC News reported.

The 10-mile chase, which reached speeds as fast as 100 mph, was recorded on the police car’s dash-cam.

"She probably was able to reach her cuffed hands to the side of her hip and drive," Center Township Police Chief Barry Kramer said, according to ABC News. "I'm not completely sure though because there was no camera that captured the inside of the car. [Rimer] was very thin, long-armed and lanky, so it's possible she was flexible enough to reach over the side of her hip and grab the wheel."

At one point, Rimmer seems to be calling to a passerby asking for help driving the car. She then abandoned the car and ran into the woods, still handcuffed.

"She was going to get out of that situation at whatever the cost," Frank Martocci, an assistant district attorney in Beaver County, said, according to the New York Daily News.

Kramer said Rimmer was in possession of suspected heroin needles, WPXI-TV reported.

She has two children but doesn’t have custody of them, the station reported.

Twitter users expressed surprise.
