MCSO releases video of naked woman stealing deputy’s truck near Phoenix
PHOENIX — Authorities released video Thursday that showed what happened when a naked woman allegedly stole a marked sheriff’s deputy vehicle near Phoenix
Body camera footage showed Deputy Francisco Campillo speaking with the woman, 31-year-old Lisa Luna, at a gas station in Gila Bend. Luna told Campillo she had been raped and wanted something to cover herself.
Campillo can be seen grabbing a blanket out of the back of his patrol truck and trying to find Luna, who had jumped in the driver’s seat. The footage then shows Luna speeding off while Campillo attempts to hang on. He was treated at a hospital and later released.
Luna drove eastbound along Interstate 8 and hit speeds as high as 100 mph. She crashed on Interstate 10 near Eloy after hitting another car. Deputies from both Maricopa and Pinal counties, along with troopers from the Arizona Department of Public Safety, were involved in the pursuit and deployed stop sticks.
Luna later investigators she was high on drugs and the effects caused her to steal the pickup of a deputy whom she’d told she had been sexually assaulted.
She later recanted the assault story.
Luna is facing charges of unlawful flight from law enforcement, possession of a stolen MCSO vehicle, resisting arrest, theft of a means of transportation and aggravated assault. She is being held on a $50,000 bond.
