And that headline only tells half the story.

In a country notorious for its dramatic car chases, the story of Sylvina Beagley, a 31-year-old Mormon from Utah, has to rank as one of the most bizarre.

Beagley managed to steal two cars, one of them a police cruiser, hide in a bush, slip through a cop's fingers, scale a barbed-wire fence and even get tasered without wearing a shred of clothing.

Unfortunately there's no video of Beagley's spirited escape (or capture) but there is some incredulous KSL 5 news coverage of the event, including an interview with one of the most understated men ever to work in American law enforcement.
