Pittsburgh , Pa. -

Pittsburgh police say a drunken woman tried to drive away in an unmarked police car — with two officers still inside.

According to a criminal complaint, 32-year-old Ria Buford got into the car at about 2:15 a.m. Saturday outside a nightclub that was hosting a party after a concert by popular rapper and Pittsburgh native,Wiz Khalifa.

Police said she sat in the driver's seat and told the two plainclothes officers in the back that she intended to drive the vehicle to where her own was parked.

Police said Buford was arrested before she could drive anywhere. A man who intervened in her arrest was also charged.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Buford. She faces a preliminary hearing Thursday on charges of robbery of a motor vehicle, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.
