A car owner definitely regretted leaving his convertible top open during a visit to a beach area. He came back to his sports car only to find out that someone else was sitting in the driver's seat – and they were refusing to get out of his car, even going so far to say that it was now his own. The cops were called and police arrested the Vancouver man who refused to leave the convertible.
The incident took place during the Canada Day long weekend on Sunday evening. At around 6 PM, officers arrived at Sunset Beach in Vancouver to deal with a 36-year-old man who would not get out of another person's convertible vehicle, said the Vancouver Police Department's Sgt. Jason Robillard, Global News reports.
The vehicle was a Chevrolet Corvette supercar. So how did the man get into the driver's seat? The car owner had not closed the top of his convertible, which led to the man reportedly climbing inside the car by going in through the open roof.
According to the Vancouver Sun, Robillard said that the on-scene officers kept telling the man to leave the convertible but he would not comply, even “stating that this was now his car".
After the man repeatedly ignored the officers' requests to get out of the car, the police used a bean bag shotgun on his legs and were able to arrest him.
The car did not have any damages from the incident. The 36-year-old had minor injuries. He tried to refuse medical assistance on the scene, but an ambulance treated him for his injuries.
According to Global News, after the suspect was arrested, police brought him to jail. They are now pursuing mischief-related charges against him. His identity has not been released to the public.
