Tulsa, Oklahoma (Youtube) – A Tulsa man named John Pinney steals a cop car and live-streams the whole thing on Facebook.
John Pinney is in jail after leading police on a high speed chase while inside of a stolen police car.
The incident started Monday night in downtown Tulsa on South Detroit Avenue at around 8:00 PM. A patrol officer left her keys inside of her unlocked patrol car to get some coffee. A woman called 911 and reported that a man had gotten into a police car, asked her if she wanted a ride in it, and drove off.

Police stated that Pinney has a very long criminal record which includes vehicle theft, receiving stolen goods, and assaulting police.
What’s going on in Oklahoma?
It was only a matter of time before criminals started using social media to gain notoriety for their crimes.
Earlier last week a man killed two relatives and got into a shootout with police before streaming his escape on Facebook Live.
Now we have an idiot in a stolen cop car streaming the high speed chase with police.
It’s a whole new level of reality TV.
