CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A man handcuffed after a traffic stop drove off with a Chicago Police squad car Friday afternoon in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.

The incident happened about 12:45 p.m., after police arrested 42-year-old Marquette Fisher during a traffic stop in the 4100 block of West Adams Street, police News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said.

While he was handcuffed in the backseat of a squad car, he managed to get his hands in front of him, jumped into the front seat and drove off, Gaines said. He left the car a short distance away, and was later arrested.

Fisher, of the 1400 block of South Cicero Avenue, was charged with possession of a stolen law enforcement vehicle and aggravated fleeing, Gaines said. He was also charged on misdemeanor counts of escaping from police, obstructing his identification and unauthorized theft.

Fisher was also picked up on an outstanding warrant and cited for driving on a suspended license and failing to stop at a stop sign.

Fisher was held in lieu of $40,000 bond, and his next court date is scheduled for Monday, according to the Cook County Sheriff's office.
