A Texas lady made a challenging break on Saturday when she slipped out of her cuffs and stole a police cruiser, driving officers on a rapid pursue got on dashboard and body cameras.
Toscha Sponsler, 33, of Pollok, was captured and bound in the face of her good faith after she supposedly shoplifted from a store, the Lufkin Police Department wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday. As cops filtered through her packs, Sponsler evacuated her safety belt and figured out how to wriggle out of her cuffs.
Sponsler is found in the video checking the scene before moving through the window segment in the cruiser into the driver’s seat.
An officer is heard shouting as two different cops see the cruiser pulling endlessly.
“She at that point drove officers on a 23-minute, 100-mph pursue that started at Ulta and finished in Zavalla after a DPS Trooper utilized a PIT move to influence her to lose control of the vehicle,” the police division composed.
Sponsler went after the officer’s shotgun a few times amid the interest yet it was “mechanically bolted,” police said.
The division posted the video of the film like escape on Facebook, finishing it with an officer introducing a “strategic window confinement gadget.”
Sponsler was captured and accused of escape causing genuine real damage/risk of a fatal weapon, disturbed ambush against an open worker, ownership of a controlled substance, avoiding capture with a vehicle with a past conviction and unapproved utilization of a vehicle.
She is being held on $18,000 bond.
