Early Tuesday morning, Union City Police showed up to a Walmart to arrest some people suspected of credit card fraud. One of those suspects was Atlantaresident Jenny Clementi. She was handcuffed, with her arms behind her, and put in the back of a patrol car. WXIA 11 Alive News reports it was then that Ms. Clementi managed to get her hands (still cuffed) in front of her, climb through a small opening, and then speed off with the police officer’s car.

It’d be impressive if it wasn’t reckless, dangerous, and a crime. WXIA showed just how small a space she had to squeeze through to get up front.
