Video: Handcuffed Pennsylvania Woman Drives Off in Patrol Car, Leads Police on High Speed Pursuit

VIDEO: Handcuffed Pennsylvania Woman Drives Off in Patrol Car, Leads Police on High Speed Pursuit

A Pennsylvania woman is accused of stealing a police cruiser, while handcuffed, and then led police on a chase at speeds over 100 miles per hour.

Center Township Police told KDKA TV 27-year-old Roxanne Rimer was caught shoplifting at a Kohl’s store.

Rimer was handcuffed, and put into the back of a police cruiser when she somehow managed to slip through the plexiglass divider while handcuffed.

Center Township Police Chief Barry Kramer today offered a theory of how Roxanne Rimer allegedly stole a police cruiser while her hands were cuffed behind her back.

He thinks she may have been able to use a finger or two to control the steering wheel, and doubts she used her shoulders or feet.

Police say she led them on a high speed chase down Route 51, with speeds reported at 120 mph at one point.

Rimer is facing a long list of charges, including possession of drug paraphernalia. Officers say they found heroin needles on her.

A "cage car" is NOT a secure facility and prisoners should NEVER be left unattended when they are in them. ALWAYS assume you're arrestee will fight and/or run and stay on top of them at ALL times. Saves a LOT of headache and embarrassment for you and your agency.

There is a Hymn entitled: "All things are possible, if you'll only believe." So we have 120 mph chase with a Perp, handcuffed BEHIND who "slipped through the plastic divider" in order to steal the Police Cruiser. She must not only be a True Believer, but also a contortionist, double-jointed druggie that is goal-directed in attaining multiple charges and a long jail sentence, and FEMALE! My empathy is for the LEOS--sometimes you cannot win. But I still prefer our system to that of Sharia Law.

WOW, that sure is something. There's no way she fit, she turned herself into smoke.
