ANNISTON, Ala. (AP) – A man has been captured after he allegedly stole an Anniston Police Department car and led officers on a chase.
Anniston Police Chief Shane Denham tells local media the incident happened Sunday evening when a handcuffed suspect in the back of a patrol car manipulated his handcuffs, slipped through the car’s glass window divider and got into the driver’s seat. The suspect took off and a chase began.
The pursuit went on I-20 westbound and ended at exit 156, near Pell City.
The suspect was arrested. The patrol car had minor damage but no other vehicle damage was reported. Nobody was hurt.
