Witnesses said the owner of the truck pulled up in the parking lot of the bar and got out of the vehicle. He left the truck running and a female passenger was sitting in a truck alone. Then, the suspect, Zachary Burgess, 20, of Hoover, Ala., got in and tried to steal the vehicle.
“When he tried to flee the parking lot there were several cars blocking the way,” Cpl. Don Coppola said. “He began ramming into the parked cars.” The female in the vehicle was reportedly being held in the truck against will. She claims that Burgess “forcibly” held her captive in the truck.
“The passenger was able to jump out of the vehicle and get to safety,” Coppola said.
Burgess allegedly struck a total of nine vehicles.
During questioning Burgess allegedly told an officer that he “wanted to see what it was really like to play the video game Grand Theft Auto.”
