A Chicago police officer is recovering from injuries sustained when a ‘naked woman’ allegedly stole his patrol vehicle and ran him over, authorities say.

The shocking incident unfolded just after 9:30 a.m. on Monday morning in the West Garfield Park neighborhood of the Windy City.

An officer responding to reports of shots fired discovered a woman lying in the street in a state of partial undress.

Whitley Temple, 34, was “naked, intoxicated and threatening to hit people” when the officer approached to check on her condition, according to an arrest report reviewed by the Chicago Sun-Times.

A video purportedly shot at the scene appears to show the officer approach the woman as she behaves erratically in the middle of an intersection.

Suddenly, she can be seen jumping into the driver’s seat of the patrol car while the cop tries to pull her out.

“Get out of the f**king car,” the officer can be heard yelling repeatedly.

The SUV then lurches in reverse and the officer is knocked to the pavement and dragged for several feet.

After the police vehicle slams backwards into another car, the suspect speeds off with the driver door still hanging open.

“Temple drove the squad car to a gas station, where she struck a vehicle, briefly ran into the station and then took off again, driving the squad car more than 95 mph on the Eisenhower Expressway,” the Sun-Times reports, citing Assistant State Attorney James Murphy’

“She allegedly weaved in and out of traffic until she got off at Sacramento Boulevard at a high rate of speed, striking several more vehicles as she continued to drive, before she crashed in the 2000 block of West Harrison Street and was arrested after a brief foot chase.”

Temple now reportedly faces an array of charges including felony counts of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated battery to a peace officer, resisting or obstructing a peace officer, vehicular hijacking, and possession of a stolen law enforcement vehicle.

The injured officer, 47, received six stitches for a gash in his head but was released from hospital on the same day.
