Crook steals police car... then crashes it (Video)


A man who was pulled over by police, suspected of trying to rob a supermarket, proceeded to steal the police car and then crash it.

Arthur Thompson had initially been pulled over after an alert was posted for the green Jeep he was driving in relation to the attempted theft of a computer.

But as officers were trying to talk to him, the 38-year-old assaulted them and then fought his way to their police cruiser. He then jumped into the vehicle and drove off a speeds of 100mph… until he smashed it into the back of a truck.

Luckily for us - and the rest of the internet going public - the whole thing was caught on a police dashcam. Have we ever told you how much we like dashcams?

As he was being treated in hospital, Thompson apparently asked whether his escapades had made the news… they have now.
