After Tulsa police received a 911 call from a woman reporting that a man driving a police car asked her if she wanted a ride, and a police officer reported her patrol vehicle stolen as she stopped for coffee, authorities were lead on a 4-city chase by a man named John Pinney, who livestreamed himself committing the crime on Facebook. The pursuit continued for nearly 40 minutes, reaching speeds of up to 120 miles per hour, and only ended when Pinney evaded police and sought shelter at his parents’ home. Pinney, whose rap sheet features prior charges of vehicle theft, receiving stolen goods, and assaulting police, faces nine new charges for the incident, including resisting arrest, two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon, false impersonation of a public officer, reckless driving, and not wearing a seat-belt.
