Escaped Mental Patient Steals Cop Car


"According to a Georgetown County Sheriff's Office press release, deputies responded to the Waccamaw Community Hospital around 8:30 a.m. and learned that a patient at the hospital on mental commitment papers walked away from the facility.

Witnesses told police the man was seen walking down U.S. Highway 17 bypass in the Murrells Inlet area. Deputies attempted to take him into custody, but the man ran and ended up getting into a marked Georgetown County Sheriff's patrol car.

The man led police through Horry County to Highway 904 west of Tabor City, N.C., where N.C. Highway Patrol took him into custody."
