SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah – What kind of mileage does that thing get?
Police in South Salt Lake, Utah, have arrested a man they say tried to steal a fire truck so he could drive home — to Washington — for Christmas.
Detective Gary Keller says firefighters on a medical call heard the $500,000 truck's air horn blaring Monday and ran outside. They found a man in the driver's seat trying to drive away.
After a lengthy struggle, firefighters were finally able to subdue the man until police arrived.
Police said the 25-year-old man told them he wanted to go to Washington to see his mother for Christmas.
