How Rachel Zion Clay slipped her wrist out of her handcuffs & opened fire a cop with his OWN AR-15
Video taken inside the vehicle shows Clay squirming in the backseat, slipping her right wrist out of her handcuffs, reaching the console toward the front of the car, and unlocked the gun compartment before retrieving an AR-15 assault rifle.
Clay can then be seen loading a magazine into the gun, flipping the rifle’s flashlight on and pointing it out of the rear window, and firing.
One officer and Moses were injured in the shooting as bullets grazed them, but both were treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released from the hospital.
Clay barricaded herself inside the vehicle for over four hours before she surrendered, and officers found methamphetamines in her system.
She has now been charged with three felony counts of shooting with intent to kill for the shooting and is being held on a $1 million bond.
