REDDING, Calif. (CBS Sacramento) – A man stole a truck so he could make it to court in time for his court hearing on an unrelated auto theft charge, reports the Redding Record Searchlight.

Officers located the truck with 21-year-old Michael Heller behind the wheel, say officials.

When asked why he took the truck, Heller told officers he needed a ride to court for a stolen vehicle case.

Heller was arrested on auto theft charges.
