Joseph Pinkcett faces a cornucopia of charges after he allegedly stole a police car and took it for a joy ride early this morning.
The victimized police officers had left their cruiser running while they were inspecting a car stopped for a traffic violation.
Mr. Pinkcett saw the running cop car and decided to take it for an ill advised spin. The car thief only made it a few blocks before responding officers boxed him in and placed him under arrest.
Police records show that Mr. Pinkcett was high at the time of the theft so he was charged with a DWI plus, grand larceny, reckless endangerment, possession of stolen property, and unauthorized use of a vehicle.
Mr. Pinkcett was taken to the hospital for observation before being booked.
