— -- A man in Tulsa, Oklahoma, led police on a high speed chase in a stolen patrol car — and streamed the entire incident on Facebook Live.

John Pinney, 25, allegedly stole the police car on Monday after an officer left the keys in the vehicle.

"If you don't believe it, check it out! Where are my sirens at?" he said as he started the video.

Pinney took everyone, including authorities, along for the ride. "I've got cops behind me," he boasted.

Tulsa officials pursued him as he led them at speeds over 100 mph, at times on roads with children in the area.

"I'm driving with my knees right now trying to show you all this," he said as the chase continued.

At one point Pinney stopped the police car and got out to give a view of it, saying, "There it is."

After 40 minutes of pursuit, officers tracked the stolen car to his parents' house and apprehended him.

"I would encourage every criminal out there to Facebook Live their crimes so that we can catch you a lot easier," said one officer involved. "And use that Facebook Live at your trial to get you a better conviction."

Pinney has an extensive criminal record, according to authorities. He is being held in a Tulsa County jail on nine felony charges, including eluding police, resisting arrest and possession of a firearm by a felon.
