Handcuffed Man Steals Police Cruiser, Leads Officers On Chase

NANTY GLO, Pa. (June 10, 2013)--Pennsylvania state police say they arrested Anthony Fox, 26, on drug charges Saturday night in Nanty Glo, Pa., 60 miles east of Pittsburgh, but say he somehow got free from his seatbelt in the back of a police cruiser, worked his cuffed hands around so they were in front of him and drove away.

Police say they gave chase and caught up to the Smicksburg man after he crashed the car in front of an apartment building in nearby Jackson Township.

Fox was in the Cambria County Prison Monday on charges including escape, theft, driving under the influence and possession of drug paraphernalia.
