Squad cars are supposed to have the window switches in the back of the car disabled, but not this one, Lt. J.P. Bevering said Monday morning. Porter was able to roll down the window, reach out and open the door. Dash cam video shows him climbing into the driver’s seat and taking off. The car was found abandoned at a nearby apartment complex, Bevering said. Porter remained at large Monday.
White Settlement police arrested Porter as recently as April on an assault charge. According to online court records, he pleaded guilty to a different charge and was sentenced to 90 days in jail. Porter has a criminal history dating back more than two decades that includes arrests for several burglaries and thefts.
