Florida Man's Carjacking Plot Fails Because He Can't Drive Stick
A Florida man wanted to steal himself a vehicle, so he decided to flag down the first car that came his way so he could carjack it.
A woman driving down 50th Avenue in Escambia County slowed down when she spotted the man waving her down, pretending he needed help.
When she stopped, the man pulled out a gun and demanded she get out.
He hopped in the car.
And then his grand criminal plan was foiled when he noticed the car was stick shift, because he apparently doesn't drive stick.
So it was time to switch to Plan B: RUN AWAY!
According to the Escambia County Sheriff's Office's Facebook, Antoren "Chief Keef" Bell, 19, fled on foot from the vehicle when he discovered that it was a stick shift.
The victim helped police ID Bell through a lineup, and he was arrested Friday.
The incident happened back in May.
Bell has been charged with theft, robbery, and criminal mischief. He was being held on $400,000 bond.
