A suspected shoplifter who had her hands cuffed behind her back was somehow able to steal a police car and lead officers on a high-speed chase, newly released dashcam video showed.

The incident occurred just north of Pittsburgh on Jan. 14th, CNN reported.

Roxanne Rimer was tied in handcuffs when she stole the patrol car after crawling through its glass partition, police said, according to the cable news channel.

She rammed her own vehicle before driving away and reaching dangerous speeds of up to 100 miles per hour down two lane roads.

The dashcam video released by Center Township police showed her moving onto a highway, weaving in out of traffic and somehow managing to honk the car's horn at other vehicles as she tried to evade pursuing officers.

At one point, she even stopped and asked for help driving the police car, the video showed.

Rimer eventually ditched the vehicle, as dashcam captured her walking away with her hands still behind her back.

It was not immediately clear how she drove the car.

Police caught and arrested her while she tried to flee into the woods.
