What you’re watching here is a fucking retard (his words, not mine) named John Pinney finding a new and inventive technological way to spend some time in jail. To be more specific, it’s an edited down version of Pinney using a police officer’s iPad to stream himself on Facebook Live being chased as he drives around in the cruiser he stole from that same officer for around 40 minutes on Monday.
Tulsa police sergeant Steve Stoltz said a woman called 911 not long after and told the dispatcher she saw a man get into a police car and he asked if she wanted a ride, but drove off when she said no.
Multiple agencies responded, resulting in a chase that lasted between 30 and 40 minutes, at speeds of more than 120 miles per hour, according to police.
While the chase was ongoing, Pinney posted videos to Facebook, allegedly using the officer’s iPad.
“I’m in the cop car. Where’s my sirens at?” Pinney can be heard saying, before clicking a button. “You hear my sirens? Look, check it out.”
Police eventually caught up with him and arrested him near his home, because of course they did. Why wouldn’t home be where you went when you’re riding around in a cop car that doesn’t belong to you and everyone knows it? It’s just good sense.
Pinney has been charged with a long list of things, among them eluding, resisting arrest and possession of a firearm by a felon.
It should be noted that as dumb as this is, Pinney isn’t the only half-wit in the room today. Had it not been for the officer to whom the car belonged leaving its keys inside of it and its doors unlocked while she went for a coffee, odds are we wouldn’t be talking about this right now. So far there hasn’t been any word on possible discipline for that part of it, but come on now.
