Today’s desperate attempt to evade arrest comes out of Pleasanton, California courtesy of the California Highway Patrol and one extremely bad driver (read: a woman).
According to reports, after failing to yield to an officer’s attempt to initiate a traffic stop, a woman behind the wheel of an Acura Integra attempted to evade CHP officers in a high-speed pursuit northbound on the I-680. After exiting the freeway at an unsafe speed and losing control of the Integra, the female driver and her male passenger abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot. When officers apprehended the female, she was promptly handcuffed and placed in the backseat of a CHP cruiser. After ensuring the woman was securely in custody, the arresting officers then left the woman unattended as they left to render assistant in the arrest of her male counterpart.
When left to her own devices, the woman was somehow able to maneuver her shackled hands in front of her person, enabling her to commandeer the squad car and flee the scene. CHP officers pursued the woman through Sunol and Pleasanton at speeds exceeding 100 mph before the woman lost control of the cruiser on the Stoneridge Drive exit ramp, overturning the vehicle on an embankment. After using a stun gun to subdue her, both the female and male were taken to ValleyCare Medical Center in Pleasanton for minor injuries. After receiving a thorough medical examination, doctors discovered that both Bonnie and Clyde were suffering from terminal cases of dumbassness, a disease for which there is no cure other than death by short-range firing squad.
