Police: Drunk Man Arrested After Stealing, Crashing CMPD Cruiser
Police have arrested a man they said was drunk when he stole an officer’s patrol car overnight and crashed it in the woods in west Charlotte.
Investigators said the officer was working off-duty at a nightclub when the theft happened, and that the man ended up wrecking the stolen cruiser on Scott Futrell Drive.
As a tow truck pulled the police car from the woods around 6 a.m., the front of the cruiser looked to be completely totaled from the wreck.
Investigators told Channel 9 that an officer was working off-duty at The White House nightclub when he responded to a fight call around 2 a.m. at a neighboring business, Coyote Joe’s, on Wilkinson Boulevard.Read More
