Pennsylvania police have released shocking dashcam footage of a high-speed chase involving a woman who stole a cop car — all while with her hands were cuffed behind her back.
Roxanne Rimer, 27, somehow managed to make her way from the back seat to the driver’s seat of the Center Township police cruiser before stepping on the gas — kicking off a nearly 10-minute ride.
The Chippewa Township woman had been arrested that night, Jan. 14, for allegedly stealing earrings from a Kohl's department store.
Police footage shows that Rimer and her mother, Malinda Greene, had been handcuffed and escorted to separate cars.
“Mom! Mommy!” Rimer screamed, as an officer brought her to the patrol car. She did not stay put for long.
Greene says she watched her daughter crawl through a 12-by-11-inch window to the front of the cruiser, reported WTAE.
"She's just little," Greene told the Pittsburgh station Tuesday. "She wiggled her way through."
The video shows the cop car slam into her family's car, with her grandfather in the driver’s seat, before speeding away — eventually reaching nearly 100 mph.
Greene said her daughter drove the vehicle with her legs. "With her left knee, she steered the steering wheel, and with her right knee, she used the gas and the brake,” Greene said.
Other vehicles got out of the way as she sped by with the siren blaring, authorities said.
Eventually, cops say, she ditched the car on an empty back road and ran away.
Rimer is in custody at the Beaver County Jail, where she faces more than 30 charges, according to WTAE. They include aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, fleeing and eluding police, and robbery.
