This story is legit “so Florida.” A man who broke down tried to steal a cop car after a deputy stopped to help him on I485.

The incident began when the deputy spotted a disabled vehicle in the left lane slowing down traffic, he stopped to help. After a few minutes, the man jumped from his vehicle and jumped into the deputy’s patrol car.

The report states McCalston “repeatedly pushed the patrol car’s gas pedal and attempted to drive away but was unable” due to the transmission lock.
