Video shows Estrada getting on top of the patrol auto and deciding on his next move.

A 150-mile drive to transfer an inmate in West Texas turned into a wild ride when he broke a window and got on the roof of the moving patrol vehicle. Because the Taylor County deputy's vehicle window was broken out, Wichita County Sheriff's Office administrators offered to have the prisoner transported by them on to the Taylor County Jail. The events were captured by a motorist on Highway 277 in Archer County.

Estrada apparently kicked out a back window and climbed on top of the patrol auto as it traveled down the highway.

Police said Estrada then threatened suicide if the driver didn't pull over the auto and when they didn't, he climbed onto the vehicle's roof.

The inmate managed to balance himself on the top of the vehicle, and the officer continued driving until the help he had summoned arrived. However, he was tased during his attempted escape, placed back into handcuffs, and transported to jail by Wichita County Sheriff's Office.

According to authorities, Estrada was wanted in Abilene on charges of aggravated robbery, evading arrest and methamphetamine possession.
