Woman Tries To Escape Police By Taking To The Trees

A woman who was driving a pickup truck with stolen plates was arrested in Palm Beach after trying to escape by climbing a tree.

According to an article in the Sun Sentinel, police pulled over the truck with a license plate from an SUV stolen from Miami. The window tint prevented officers from seeing inside the truck, but after demanding that the driver show his or her hands, the driver, Amy Meissner took off.

Police lost the truck, but a fisherman later told them about a truck parked in the bushes in Four Arts Plaza. The truck was empty, but police found Meissner hiding nearby. From there, she climbed a tree onto a roof and later jumped into a nearby tree. When she eventually came down, she had to be treated for two broken toes.

When questioned by police, she denied being the driver and said another man was with her. Meissner faces charges of grand theft auto, fleeing, driving without a license and reckless driving.
