Hey, if you’re going to steal a cop car, why not share the experience with your friends?

Police arrested John Pinney, a Tulsa resident, who stole a cop car and streamed the joyride on Facebook Live on Monday night. Pinney's friends and followers got to join in the fun of stealing a patrol car, engaging in a high-speed police chase, and singing along to the radio without the added stress of breaking the law.

Oklahoma's News on 6 reports that Pinney simply walked up to the unlocked patrol car, opened the door, and took off.

News On 6 continues, "Tulsa police sergeant Steve Stoltz said a woman called 911 and told the dispatcher a man got into a police car near 5th and Denver, asked if she wanted a ride, then drove off when she said no."

Presumably, when this woman declined to be Pinney's audience, he turned to the officer's iPad, where he logged onto Facebook and proceeded to bring officers and followers on a 30-to-40-minute, 120-mile-per-hour car chase.

Stoltz "Liked" Pinney's approach to expediting police procedure, though.

"I would encourage every criminal out there to Facebook Live their crimes so that we can catch you a lot easier," said Stoltz. "Use that Facebook Live at your trial to get a better conviction."

According to News on 6, Pinney was arrested "on nine complaints, including eluding, resisting arrest, and possession of a firearm by a felon." Thanks to Facebook Live, we’ll be able to relieve these crimes over and over again.

Just a quick update on all those Facebook check-ins in North Dakota yesterday. As it turns out, the Morton County Sheriff's Department says that it is not looking at check-ins to verify protesters of the Dakota Access Pipeline. 

The Morton County Sheriff's Department took to Facebook and said:

Yesterday, thousands of Facebook users "checked in" at Standing Rock Indian reservation in Cannon Ball, ND in hopes of confusing police and showing support for the activists.

Despite the validity of the original post, The LA Times says, "Some Native American activists still welcomed the check-ins as another form of showing support for the months-long protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline, proposed to run past tribal land on its route between North Dakota and Illinois."

Two things that really got me going here: One, it's almost like he thought by showing the police he was playing Pokémon GO! that he thought it'd be all chill after. Second, I'm pretty sure he was still trying to catch whatever it was that got him in the accident, after being confronted by the cops for CRASHING into a cop car! Sheesh, man. Come on.

Since its launch, Pokemon Go players have fallen into a pond, found a dead body and were targeted by robbers. But the boys in blue of the Sterling Police came across a burglar who came up with a perfect excuse: "I was looking for a Pokestop". Slight problem: he was holding a crowbar at 2am on a rooftop!

Apparently, London police found a "hidey hole" full of individual baggies of pot. Of course they confiscated them, but they were kind enough to leave a note. 

Who knows if the dealer will #GetInTouch. We're guessing, probably not.

It looks like "suspicious" rap battlers are on the loose in Charlton, Massachusetts. The local police department posted this bulletin, warning residents of mysterious strangers that might shout "Rap lingo" at them. Obviously, a lot of Facebook commenters did not take this notice very seriously:



Not everyone disagreed with the police's stance on this, and they initially responded to criticism with a little more information to justify the a post about the incident. 



They also updated later to add some context to the post. 



Rap music is safe... for now, just keep your rap battles out of Charlton.
