Remember this the next time you think about your "wild" teenage years. 

When 18-year-old Shelby Figueroa was arrested for crashing her car into a police SUV near Georgetown, CO the police must've thought they had her under control (not quite). A few minutes after being arrested, Figueroa broke out of her handcuffs, climbed into the front seat of the SUV and then led police on a 30-minute police chase—oh, by the way, she wasn't sober.

Eventually, Figueroa lost control of the vehicle and swerved off the road after hitting a spike strip, which caused the SUV to flip and crash into a rock wall. 

And you thought Grand Theft Auto was just a video game.
