Atlanta Falcons rookie wide receiver Calvin Ridley had his car stolen at a gas station Saturday night, police said.
Ridley was at a BP gas station in Buckhead, Georgia, and was inside the convenience store when his 2018 Dodge Challenger was stolen, police told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The 24-year-old’s vehicle was still running when he was in the store and someone drove away with it, police. Ridley said the car was a push-to-start and had the keys on him when the car was stolen, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Ridley was apparently the victim of a “slider crime,” in which thieves go after unlocked cars at a gas station, the newspaper reported. Ridley, in a since-deleted tweet, asked the public for help getting his car back.
“Man they got me last night in Buckhead,” he wrote, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Car Stolen. No such thing as a safe part of town so be careful. Grateful there was no violence, they just got me at the gas station & rode out.”
No suspects have been identified in the theft.
In his first season with the Falcons, Ridley recorded 821 yards and 10 touchdowns.
