Police arrested an Oklahoma man after he allegedly stole a police car and live streamed his escape from police over Facebook.
Officers pursued John Pinney, 25, in a high speed car chase as Pinney bragged about his antics over live stream, reports ABC News.
According to police, an officer left the keys in her unlocked squad car; Pinney jumped in the car and drove away.
“If you don’t believe it, check it out! Where are my sirens at?” Pinney said at the beginning of the video.
“I’m a motherfucking retard is what I am!” Pinney said as he filmed himself driving away from police. “So I got cops behind me and shit!”
Pinney led cops on a 40 minute chase, driving through areas with children at speeds over 100 mph.
At one point, Pinney turned on the car’s sirens, telling viewers, “I can’t believe I’m doing this for real!”
“It’s whatever though. I got away from five cops already, dude! I ain’t even fucking playing,” he brags in the video.
Officers eventually tracked the stolen car to the house of Pinney’s parents.
“I would encourage every criminal out there to Facebook Live their crimes so that we can catch you a lot easier. And use that Facebook Live at your trial to get you a better conviction,” one officer said.
Pinney already has a criminal record, according to authorities. Pinney was given a four year suspended sentence for attacking a cop in 2016.
He is now in a Tulsa County jail for nine felony charges, including resisting arrest, possession of a firearm by a felon and eluding police officers.
