A man in Tulsa, Oklahoma filmed a live broadcast of himself being chased by police after he stole an officer's car.

Martin Pinney, 25, found an unlocked police cruiser in Tulsa with the keys inside as a policewoman took a coffee break. Officers gave chase after a member of the public called 911 to report a man taking a police car and asking if she wanted a ride.


According to reports, he hit speeds of more than 120mph as he raced through residential streets. While on the run, Pinney used the officer's iPad to record four live videos on Facebook.

Officers lost sight of the vehicle, but it was spotted by police in Skiatook, a city north of Tulsa, where he was pursued until he stopped at his parents' house.

Tulsa police sergeant Steve Stoltz said Pinney so would face several charges. He was booked into Tulsa County Jail on nine complaints, including eluding, resisting arrest and possession of a firearm by a felon.
