Following an alleged domestic dispute at her home in the Lindenwold section of Camden County, a woman sprung free of her handcuffs and took off in a police cruiser.

35-year-old Danyl Fontanez, of Brighton Avenue, became uncooperative and disruptive after Lindenwold Police responded to a domestic violence call from her home at approximately 1 a.m.  She was arrested following a brief struggle, WPVI reports.

After being handcuffed, placed in the back of a running patrol car, and left alone while officers proceeded with their investigation, Fontanez allegedly slipped out of her handcuffs and managed to kick through a center partition window between the front and back seat. She then climbed into the driver’s seat and took off making it all the way to Cherry Hill’s Bayberry Court before being captured.

During her apprehension the woman reportedly continued to fight with the officers, and suffered a minor cut to her chin. She was sent to the hospital for treatment.

Lindenwold police had good intention leaving the patrol car running.  They say it would have been too hot for her to sit without air conditioning.

Detective Christopher Sherrer of the Lindenwold Police Department said of the incident, “Handcuffs only go so tight, if you have little hands, you can fold your fingers,” Sherrer said.

The patrol car was not damaged.
