(Scroll down for video) Police in Pennsylvania, were shocked when a woman stole their cruiser and drove off while she was handcuffed.
Police have released shocking dashcam video of the high-speed chase, involving the woman whose hands were cuffed behind her back.
Roxanne Rimer, 27, was placed in the police cruiser while officers spoke to her mother during a traffic stop.
Rimer somehow managed to make her way from the back seat of the police car to the driver’s seat before stepping on the accelerator.
The woman of Chippewa Township, drove off and led police on a high-speed chase, which lasted for about 10 minutes.
Rimer and her mother, Malinda Greene, were handcuffed and escorted to separate police cars after being accused of stealing earrings from a Kohl’s department store.
Greene said that she saw her daughter crawling through the window of the patrol car feet first before driving the vehicle with her legs.
The dashcam video was taken from the car driving by Rimer. The video shows the police car hitting her family’s car, before speeding away and eventually reaching 80 miles per hour.
She eventually pulled over and asked someone for help with driving the car. When that person refused, Rimer got out of the car and fled the scene with the handcuffs still behind her back.
Rimer is facing more than 30 charges, including aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, fleeing and eluding police and theft.
