WHITE SETTLEMENT, Texas (CNN) - Police in North Texas are searching for a criminal who stole a police cruiser while handcuffed.
Officers arrested Darren Porter on Friday on suspicion of burglary charges. They handcuffed him and put him in the backseat of their cruiser, then continued their investigation. But he managed to roll down a back window, then got in the driver's seat and took off on a wild ride.
The cruiser's dash cam captured some of the wild ride. At one point, Porter hit a puddle and went spinning out of control. The vehicle was found abandoned in Fort Worth.
Investigators say several police rifles were missing.
