(TULSA, Okla.) — A man in Tulsa, Oklahoma led police on a high speed chase in a stolen patrol car — and streamed the entire incident on Facebook Live.
John Pinney, 25, allegedly stole the police car on Monday after an officer left the keys in the vehicle.
“If you don’t believe it, check it out! Where are my sirens at?” Pinney said as he started the video.
Pinney took everyone, including authorities, along for the ride. “I’ve got cops behind me,” he boasted.
Tulsa officials pursued Pinney as he led them at speeds over 100 mph, at times through neighborhoods with children in the area.
“I’m driving with my knees right now trying to show you all this,” he said as the chase continued.
At one point Pinney stopped the stolen police car and got out to give a look at his view, saying, “There it is.”
After 40 minutes of pursuit, officers tracked the stolen police car to Pinney’s parents’ house and apprehended the suspect upon arrival.
“I would encourage every criminal out there to Facebook Live their crimes so that we can catch you a lot easier,” said one officer involved. “And use that Facebook Live at your trial to get you a better conviction.”
Pinney has an extensive criminal record, according to authorities. He is being held in a Tulsa County jail on nine felony charges, including alluding police, resisting arrest and possession of a firearm by a felon.
