A 39-year-old Detroit man was arrested Tuesday after stealing a police car and leading Oak Park police on a chase.

Police stopped an alleged drunk driver near 8 Mile and Hubbell at about 4 a.m. when they noticed a man lurking around them.

Officers arrested the DUI suspect, put her in the back of a car and returned to their investigation.

Meanwhile, the man broke into the police car and drove away with the woman in the back seat.

The chase moved northbound on Greenfield Avenue, then eastbound on 9 Mile near Ferndale. It ended at a dead end on Albany Street.

Police said the prosecutor's office will likely submit charges tomorrow. Dashcam was not released pending the investigation.

No one was injured in the pursuit.
