A police sergeant, hoping to separate the two, placed Stewart in the back of his car. However, when the officer went to speak to the apparent victim, police said Stewart “appear[ed] to crawl through the divider from the back seat into the front seat of the patrol car.”
Stewart then “drove off” in the vehicle, according to police.
