Handcuffed Suspect Reportedly Hijacks Police Car In Pennsylvania

A Pennsylvania woman has been ordered to stand trial in the US on charges she stole a police car and led officers on a chase at speeds of up to 80 miles per hour (129 kilometres per hour) while still handcuffed.

ABC News stated that Cops chased 27-year-old Roxanne Rimer, who drove down Route 51 as fast as 100 mph with her hands cuffed behind her back, according to Center Township Police Chief Barry Kramer in Pennsylvania.

“She probably was able to reach her cuffed hands to the side of her hip and drive,” Kramer said. “I’m not completely sure though because there was no camera that captured the inside of the car. [Rimer] was very thin, long-armed and lanky, so it’s possible she was flexible enough to reach over the side of her hip and grab the wheel.”
