Cop Car



Corrupt sheriff Kretzer removes his uniform's shirt and leaves his handgun in the back seat of his police car. He removes a body from his car's trunk, drags and drops it in a covered pit in the woods, and pours a bag of quicklime on it. Meanwhile, two young runaways and juvenile delinquents, Travis and Harrison, come across Kretzer's cop car. Believing it to be abandoned, they hijack the vehicle and go on a joyride. Upon finding his car gone, Kretzer calls his dispatcher Mary Allen to tell her that his radio is down so he should be contacted through phone. Meanwhile, the boys speed down the wrong lane, narrowly missing a woman driving in the oncoming lane.


At a trailer park, Kretzer steals a car, but, after avoiding arrest, he abandons it, replacing it with his own pickup truck when he arrives home. Allen informs him of a report of a stolen sheriff's car driven by two boys under age 10. He orders her to ignore the report and has her tell his deputies to switch their radios to a different channel, before he uses the regular channel to call the boys to no avail.


Travis and Harrison are playing with Kretzer's weapons, but they hear thumping from the car's trunk and open it to see a bloodied man, restrained like the man Kretzer earlier disposed. He manages to convince the boys to free him after informing them about Kretzer being the "bad guy." At home, Kretzer dumps bags of cocaine into his toilet and packs a bag of cash. He hears Harrison on his truck's radio and picks up the call, where Harrison claims to have kept the car safe and tells him their location.


The man from the trunk had betrayed the boys and forced Harrison at gunpoint to tell Kretzer their location so he can enact revenge. He and his brother, the dead body from earlier, were part of a drug deal with Kretzer gone wrong. Locking them in the car's backseat, he threatens the boys' families and warns them not to tell Kretzer where he is hiding before taking cover near a windmill. Kretzer arrives and sees the open front door of the cop car, and takes cover behind the car after sensing that something is amiss.


The woman whose car the boys almost hit earlier, Bev, shows up and walks towards the car, screaming at the boys. She sees Kretzer, who claims to be injured, and he asks her to look for his keys in the direction where he suspects the man is hiding. Bev spots the man from the trunk and gives away his location before she is shot and killed by the man, prompting a gunfight with him and Kretzer. Kretzer manages to kill the man but is severely wounded in the process.


The boys escape the car by shooting out the window, but Travis is hit by one of the ricochets from their escape attempt. Harrison takes the cop car and drives down to get help for Travis, but Kretzer recovers and follows them in his truck while taunting them through the radio. With night falling and not knowing how to turn on the vehicle's headlights, Harrison ignores Kretzer and continues to speed down the road. As Kretzer tries to run them off the road, Harrison sees a cow and avoids it, but Kretzer crashes into it. Harrison continues onward before finally seeing the town lights on the horizon. Allen attempts to contact Kretzer over the radio, which Harrison picks up as he speeds towards town.


The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2015.[3] The film was released in theaters on August 7, 2015 by Focus World, which acquired distribution rights to the film on January 28, 2015.[4][5]


Cop Car received generally positive reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 82% based on 90 reviews, with an average rating of 7.10/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Cop Car boasts a terrific premise and a grimly gripping opening act -- and for some viewers, that will be enough to compensate for the movie's uneven denouement."[6] On Metacritic, the film has a score of 66 out of 100, based on 21 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[7]


Michael O'Sullivan of The Washington Post gave the film two out of four stars, saying, "Cop Car builds up a nice, suspenseful head of steam, mixing dark comedy and true creepiness in such a way that one mood never overwhelms the other."[8] Bill Goodykoontz of The Arizona Republic gave the film three and a half stars out of five, saying, "Bacon can play just about anything, and he's having a good time here as a guy not quite smart enough to keep himself out of trouble, but wily enough to try to dig himself out of it. It's fun to watch."[9] Bruce Demara of the Toronto Star gave the film three out of four stars, saying, "Anchored by solid performances and a taut script, Cop Car is a tension-filled thrill ride."[10] Brian Moylan of The Guardian gave the film four out of five stars, saying, "The movie culminates in a tense, protracted standoff that keeps the audience on edge for way longer than is comfortable. I mean that as a compliment."[11] Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter gave the film a negative review, saying, "A potentially fun premise soon turns into no fun at all in Cop Car, a seriously imagination-challenged low-end action thriller."[12] Peter Debruge of Variety gave the film a positive review, saying, "Watts demonstrates masterful control, pushing right up against the limits of what we can take (even non-parents will be rattled watching the boys mishandling loaded weapons), and yet, at every turn, the screenplay falls short of the picture's full potential, missing opportunities that could have made this a classic."[1]

When two rebellious young boys stumble across an abandoned cop car hidden in a secluded glade they decide to take it for a joyride. When the small town sheriff (Kevin Bacon) goes looking for his missing car, the boys find themselves in the center of a deadly game of cat and mouse and the only way out is to go as fast as their cop car can take them.


At a news conference at the scene of the crash on Thursday, Jeffrey Maddrey, NYPD chief of patrol, said officers were responding to a call of a vehicle being stolen when the crash occurred at 3 p.m. on Hoe and Westchester avenues.


The force of the collision hurled the police officer driving the NYPD cruiser onto an adjacent sidewalk, where it struck six pedestrians, whose ages ranged from 5 to 65, Maddrey said. Two people in the other vehicle in the collision were also injured, including a 2-year-old child, Maddrey said.


In the video, an unmarked police SUV is slowly cruising a gun store parking lot just as Raymond's lawyer says he had gone to his car without his cell phone. After the unmarked SUV pulls away, Raymond can be seen running toward it.


This video shows my client running after a vehicle he thinks is full of bad guys ready to break into his store," Martella said. "And that vehicle turns around and drives at a high rate of speed right at him. My client puts up his hands to get that vehicle to stop."


Martella said Raymond was afraid for his life and the speeding vehicle should be considered "deadly force" that was directed at the gun store owner. He added that the incident happened as Raymond and other gun store owners in the area had been put on alert by authorities to a spree of dangerous smash and grab robberies targeting gun stores in the region.


After saying he viewed the video, Judge Mays asked why Raymond didn't go inside and call 911, rather than confronting the car. Mays also noted Raymond fired after the car was past him and the immediate threat was over.


In response, Martella pointed to video of another car seen apparently casing the gun store the night before. He said Raymond had been in contact with police and was so concerned he had been sleeping at the store.


In asking for bail and release from confinement, Martella said Raymond's mother and aunt are both retired Montgomery County police officers and his store has many police as customers. The attorney added that Raymond is well known in the law enforcement community and handles the resale of retired police firearms for agencies including the Frederick County Sheriff's department.

Officers from the Lufkin Police Department responded to a 911 call about a possible shoplifter at an Ulta Beauty store on Saturday afternoon. The officers chased down the suspect, 33-year-old Toscha Sponsler of Pollok, and placed her in a patrol vehicle with a seat belt and her hands cuffed behind her back, police said.


While the officers went through the woman's bags of allegedly stolen goods in the store's parking lot, a camera inside the patrol vehicle captured Sponsler removing her seat belt, slipping out of the handcuffs and climbing through a window partition into the driver's seat. 041b061a72
