Woman Allegedly Tries to Steal Police Car With Two Officers Inside

A woman was arrested yesterday after allegedly trying to steal a police car while two plainclothes officers were inside, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The unmarked police car was parked outside Club Xtaza in Pittsburgh, where an afterparty for a Wiz Khalifa concert was being held.

Ria Buford, 32, hopped in the driver's seat of the police car at about 2 a.m. Police report that she smelled of alcohol. Buford told the two officers—Officer Garrett Spory riding shotgun and the other officer in the backseat—that she was taking the vehicle to her car.

When Spory tried to remove Buford from the car, a man, who refused to give his age or name, intervened. They were both arrested and charged with public drunkenness.

Buford was additionally charged with disorderly conduct and robbery of the motor vehicle.
