Caught on Camera: Woman Steals Cop Car

A woman in Fayetteville, N.C., slipped from the grasp of a police officer and stole his cruiser on Labor Day.

The officer was responding to calls of a suspicious person with a weapon. When a police officer arrived, he found 21-year-old Ayana Kennyatta Taylor wielding a hammer. Multiple people tried to assist the officer in making an arrest, but they failed. Even after being zapped with a Taser, police could not subdue her.

Bystander Sydney Jones caught the scuffle on video. Jones decided not to pursue the chase after seeing Taylor's wild actions. ABC WTVD reports Taylor went on to crash the police car into three other cars before she was taken into custody. After a trip to the hospital, she was charged with assault of a police officer with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest.

      too bad the person video taping this whole thing, did not put her car in the path of the culprit as she was trying to get away, i'm sure she has insurance for the vehicle and it would not have caused to much damage since she just started the car and speed was not a factor

        You would put your car in the way ? That sounds just nuts to me .

        And she would have been rewarded with a massive increase in car insurance costs. I had my first ever tiny little fender bender - at 2 mph - and AAA insurance raised our premium $56 PER MONTH. The cost of the repair to the other car was $912. Our ins. agent told me, "You should have paid for it yourself." Then why do I have insurance?

          dickn2000b the cost of car insurance came up because someone mentioned putting their car in the way of the Police car. I think they just went on to elaborate what happened to them in a small accident just indicating how much of an issue a small accident really can be.

      This what happens when cops leave the police car running. The purp gets into the thing and runs. Nice to know the cops are still above the laws they are supposed to up hold and violate themselves. Sorry guys, some of ya do it to yourselves and ya wonder why no R. E. S. P. E. C. T. To use another, "Respect Yourselves" and then others and you will get it back. Sorry this happened and maybe someone was hurt, next time a stiff jab to the upper gut. Gets them every time.

        stop with the police crap. If you don't break the law you have no problem. they put themselves on the line everyday and their lifes. I have a lot of respect for the police and what they do it's the lawyers and law makers that make it hard for them to do their job properly and the political correct crowd that cries discrimmation all the time when it's them most of the time doing the crimes.;

      I think these cops need to go back and get some more training. None of this had to happen.

        And how did you come up with that? Woman was brandishing a hammer (many fatal assaults were done with hammers). Cop tells her to drop it. She doesn't comply. Cop tells her to drop it again. Still doesn't comply. Now I don't know where you are from, but when a cop tells you to drop a potential weapon. You comply. Or the cop will take that as defiance and potential aggression towards him or anyone else. Would you feel comfortable if someone had a hammer in their hand (with no construction site or building projects around) and was walking towards you? I didn't think so. So tell me again, how "None of this had to happen"? And why "...these cops need to go back and get some more training."? Maybe you need to learn human psychology and the law. lol

      lmao what a dumbass cop..this is something we see on Reno 911 lol...ok that is some funny stuff there !!

      This is only a small reflection of where we're at in time. We see much of the same, and with many its far worse than this happening. None the less man kind will only have to adjust to the many changes that will come our way as we travel down through time. Sure, this world has had, and will continue to have, its share of up's and down's as time marches on. Actually, the world remains basically the same...its the people that have the weakness to take the path of what seems to be the least resistance. Even so, getting on a downward road is bad news for all concerned, most especially, those that will be badly negatively effected by this downward tread of things.

        Trayvon Martin got justice, the jury ha spoken, and Zimmerman was acquitted, Martin was trying to kill Zimmerman, and got himself killed for his trouble. If martin had went on home and not attacked Zman, he would still be alive, unless somebody else would have snuffed him out, he was a wanna' be thug. and it was just a matter of time.
