Man steals Seattle Police patrol car

SEATTLE (AP) — Police say a man who appeared very intoxicated took off for a short time Thursday afternoon in a Seattle police car.  

The incident began with a report the man had assaulted several people on a bus and then fled on foot through the Battery Street tunnel.  
 
Two officers found the man in the tunnel and attempted to stop him. He fought them off, jumped in a patrol car and took off.  
 
Police chased their own car about a mile until the driver crashed into a retaining wall the Queen Anne neighborhood where the 35-year-old Seattle man was finally taken into custody.
