Just after 11 am on July 5, 2019, Destiny Talora Hawkins stole a fully marked Ferndale Police Department cruiser and went for a joyride, later telling officers that she “just wanted to have some fun.” According to the police car’s event data recorder, Hawkins’ joyride hit speeds of 100 mph in a 35 mph zone and 92 in a 25 zone. Her adventure was cut short by an 80+ mph encounter with the rear end of a GMC Yukon at the intersection of 7 Mile and Stoepel in Detroit.
This is the body-worn camera footage you have been patiently waiting for.
*A couple of people asked how insurance works for government vehicles. The City of Ferndale self-insures its police cars.
