Black man steals from Wal-Mart, then steals police car
SUMMERVILLE, S.C. – A dashboard cam recorded an unusual altercation between police and a South Carolina man who got into a fight at a stop, then promptly stole the police cruiser and drove off at high speed before crashing into a landscaping truck.
According to police, Arthur Lee Thompson, 38, was pulled over after an alert was posted for his green Jeep, following a robbery attempt at a local WalMart last Friday. Thompson allegedly attempted to steal a computer and, when confronted, punched a store employee in the mouth.
As seen in the dashboard cam video released by police and posted online by CBS Affiliate WCSC, Thompson exited his Jeep when he was stopped, disobeying the officer’s commands, and then attacked the policeman.
