Man Drove Stolen Car To Court Appearance For Car Theft Charges: Police

According to the Associated Press, a man had a court date in Connecticut on Wednesday to face charges for car theft. He showed up to that court date in a stolen car, police said. That is very bold.

The AP reports that Jonathan Rivera, 25, was at court in Hartford, Connecticut this week to face a charge of first-degree larceny and tampering with a motor vehicle from last month. While Rivera was there, authorities started scanning license plates outside the courthouse and found one had been reported stolen.

Police kept an eye on the car after seeing that, and told the AP that Rivera, who, again, was in court to face charges of car theft, came out of the courthouse and got inside of it. Officers arrested him when he tried to drive away in yet another allegedly stolen car, police told the AP. He was charged then with second-degree larceny and taking a car without the owner’s permission.


If computer fonts could get that bold, there wouldn’t even be letters on the screen. The screen would just be a giant, indistinguishable block of color.

Surely the next court date will go just as well as this one did.
