A judge found Whitley Temple not guilty of attempted murder and four other charges due to insanity after she was caught on camera stealing a Chicago police SUV and dragging the officer.

Instead of serving prison time, Temple will undergo a treatment plan as per Judge Tyria Walton’s ruling, as reported by CWBChicago.

The incident unfolded when Officer Ed Poppish found Temple lying half-naked in the street while responding to shots fired.

When he stopped to help her, Temple got into the driver’s seat of the squad car, ignoring Poppish’s attempts to intervene.

She then put the SUV in reverse, dragging Poppish and hitting another car before he was able to free himself.

WATCH:

Notably, Temple had been working as a lead accountant at the city’s Department of Family and Support Services while the case was still pending.

Temple went on a bit of a joyride with the SUV. She drove the vehicle to a gas station, got out while it was still rolling, went into the station, came back out, and drove away again.

Driving at high speeds, she weaved in and out of traffic on the expressway and ran through red lights.

After hitting five occupied cars, Temple got out and ran down the block until police were finally able to arrest her.

In true Chicago fashion, Temple was hired as as a lead accountant at the city’s Department of Family and Support Services while the case was still pending.

She lost her job earlier this year after her hiring became public knowledge.

CWBChicago noted Temple’s bail had been set at $2 million, but her attorneys filed an appeal, saying the bail was excessive.

An appellate court agreed, allowing her to go home with an ankle monitor after a relative posted her $7,500 bail deposit.

The ankle monitor was removed last year.
