Texas Woman Escapes Handcuffs, Takes Police Car on High-Speed Chase – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀(swipe) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Tuesday, Texas police released a video of a suspect slipping out of her handcuffs, stealing a police car and leading officials on a high-speed chase. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Toscha Fay Sponsler of Pollok Texas was placed under arrest on Saturday after officials picked her up on possible shoplifting charges. However, the arrest did not go without consequence. Upon the officers’ arrival, Sponsler fled on foot, prompting the officers to chase her down. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When the officials caught up to Sponsler, they cuffed her behind her back and buckled her into the backseat of the cop car, which is when things went from bad to worse, for both the officers and the suspect. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the newly released footage, Sponsler is seen wiggling out of her handcuffs, as she cautiously watches her surroundings. Once released, she climbed into the front seat and dipped off, prompting a 23-minute high-speed chase. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Eventually, Sponsler lost control of the police car and stopped. Officials quickly surrounded the vehicle, broke through the driver’s-side window and placed Sponsler under arrest, again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to NBC, Sponsler was charged with five felony counts of escape with the threat of a deadly weapon, aggravated assault, unauthorized use of a vehicle, possession of a controlled substance and evading arrest. As of Tuesday night, the suspect remained in police custody on an $18,000 bond.
