A New Jersey man who went on a joyride with a police cruiser wound up crashing it multiple times before being arrested by Woodbridge police officers.
Woodbridge Police Captain Scott Kuzma said the suspect, Jamil T. Robinson, 28, of Paterson, went on his little escapade on Monday afternoon, stealing a South Amboy police vehicle and driving it into Woodbridge before getting into a crash on Route 35. He then drove away, getting into a second crash on Route 1, causing the police vehicle to become disabled.
Robinson got out of the wrecked car and fled on foot up the southbound lanes of Route 1, attempting to stop and carjack passing vehicles before Woodbridge police took him down.
Robinson has been charged with three counts of carjacking, receiving stolen property, assault by auto, resisting arrest, endangering an injured victim, and obstructing the administration of law or other governmental function.
We can only hope he had at least had fun while it lasted.
