Handcuffed Man Steals Chicago Police Cruiser

August 26, 2013  | 

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.

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. He left the car a short distance away and was later arrested.

This happens to much, just take the keys out of the car.

No cage? Locking partition? Seems like they make equipment that prevents this sort of thing.

If you have a sliding partition, shut it. Also, seatbelting them in helps a lot when they are trying to slip the cuffs around to the front (and it is policy in a lot of agencies, including mine). Just sayin'...

I've noticed that a major of CPD squads do not have partitions or a cage. I can't figure out why, since it's there to help protect the officers sitting in the front of the vehicle.
