Man Drives Stolen Police Car Into Mississippi River
Monday , June 30, 2008
METAIRIE, La. —
Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputies say a 22-year-old River Ridge man stole a deputy's car and took it for a joyride on the Mississippi River levee before driving it into the river.
Sheriff Newell Normand says the suspect, 22-year-old David Mitchell, was apprehended while swimming in the water.
Normand said that a deputy was responding to a complaint in Metairie around 6 a.m. Sunday and when he went to return to his car, he found that it was gone.
A few minutes later, the St. Charles Parish Sheriff's office notified Jefferson Parish deputies that a police unit was driving erratically on the levee.
The deputies said they then saw the car drive into the water.
Normand said Mitchell has a lengthy prior criminal history for armed robber, simple robbery, disturbing the peace, DWI as well as numerous narcotics charges.
Divers suspended their search for the submerged squad car around midday Sunday, but deputies say the department might use sonar equipment to attempt to retrieve it.The views expressed in the above post are the sole opinion of the author and do not reflect any official position by the author's employer and/or municipality.

Mine's ok but that deputy might need sonar to find his job.Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me

A neighboring city had two PCs stolen... IN THE SAME FOOT/VEHICLE PURSUIT!!!
One of my buddies also had his unit stolen by a guy that was so drunk he thought he was stealing a cab.
I am so bad about taking my keys out that I have done it on a traffic stop, had to go back and crank back up.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)
