The Mount Pleasant Police Department has released dashcam video of a man who got behind the wheel of a police car after he was arrested. 

The video shows an incident that happened Friday, Nov. 10.

The suspect, Philip Sprouse was arrested Sunday and faces charges of burglary, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of burglary tools, escape and grand larceny of a motor vehicle as a result. 

Sprouse is taken back to another police car at the 16-second mark. The cruiser begins to move again around the 2:45 mark as officers turn their heads once they see the car moving with Sprouse allegedly behind the wheel.

Officers began running after the police car, but it moved up onto a sidewalk to avoid them, crashed into two fences and ended up in a ditch.
