Baker -- A woman who stole a Newton police car Wednesday night is in jail. 44 year-old Cathy Carter stole the cruiser after a police standoff at her home. She had barricaded herself inside her bedroom, then as police surrounded her house, she climbed out a window, jumped into the police car and took off. She returned home on foot four hours later and was arrested.

"I tried to apprehend her she became very belligerent and tried to swing at me and so fourth," says arresting officer Lamon Louge.

Police say Carter has a history of domestic disputes and had been drinking. She is now in the Baker county jail with charges pending. DFACS is also looking at possible child endangerment charges in the case.

Newton Police Chief Kenneth Corn was injured at the scene, but it remains unclear exactly how he received the injuries.
