Maybe the Red Mohawk, Piercings & Spider Tat Should've Been Her 1st Clue: Man Allegedly Ditches Date in Middle of Movie, Then Boosts Her Car Outside!
He obviously hated the movie. Not to mention her company. But he damn sure liked that car. At least she had that going for her. But her taste in men might use a tad of refining...
For some reason, the 35-year-old Tampa, Florida woman agreed to accompany the pictured Michael Pratt (27 years old) on a movie date. Maybe she's blind and thought he was a seeing-eye dog? Regardless, she agreed, and the two headed for the local cinema.
Half way through the picture, however, the woman says Pratt made a beeline straight for the exits, using as a subterfuge some lame excuse about needing to go outside. He never returned.
At that news, you'd think this broad would've been throwing a little celebration right there in the movie house. But she says was actually concerned about Pratt's welfare and therefore tried to give him a ring on the ol' blower.
Pratt answered the call and -- being ever the zany prankster -- allegedly started laughin' it up. His reported punch line before hanging up: "I've stolen your car!" With funny lines like that, I'd suspect Pratt was employing Obama's speechwriter if I didn't know better.
And you know, if you're gonna swipe someone's ride, you'd think one would at least want to get something out of it for himself. Maybe fence it off on the street. Or send it straight to the chop shop.
But nothing doin' like that here. Instead, cops say Pratt abandoned the 2012 Ford Focus (which was actually a rental car) in a Wal-Mart parking lot, where cops found it.
Now this alleged car poachin' Pratt-ster faces a Grand Theft Auto IV charge and a bit in the Big House in exchange for his little joyride (allegedly). But at least he did get a good laugh out of the whole caper (allegedly). Laughter's good for the troll.
