RICHMOND, Virginia — Hard to imagine why this seemed like a good idea.
A man has been arrested after stealing an armored personnel carrier and racing it through the streets of a Virginia town.
Cops say the vehicle, which was not equipped with weaponry, was stolen by a soldier from nearby Fort Pickett, WWBT-TV reported.
The sight of the military vehicle racing through town, prompted numerous calls to cops who quickly began giving chase.
Police eventually surrounded the vehicle and got it to stop nearly two hours after it was taken. The driver surrendered without incident.
