WAUWATOSA, WI -The woman who stole a patrol car while in custody and drove it for six blocks before pulling over and fleeing has avoided additional prison time according to reports. She was arrested when a K-9 unit tracked her down under a porch.

Antoinette Martin, 20, Milwaukee, had been charged with disorderly conduct, use of a dangerous weapon, taking and driving a vehicle without consent of its owner, and escape. She was sentenced on Monday to 90 days in the Milwaukee County House of Correction. With 90 days already served, she avoided additional confinement time. She was also sentenced to three years of probation.

Police responded to a domestic violence call in July that involved a couple near 68th Street and Wisconsin Avenue. After she was handcuffed and placed in the back seat, the woman climbed into the driver’s seat and drove away, WISN 12 News reported.
