ISP: Man who stole semi for a joyride may have mental health issues
WARRICK COUNTY, Ind. -- He took a semi for a joyride, but now he's in police custody!
Police said Brent Arthur saw the keys inside the ignition of a semi at a Crawford County truck stop and helped himself!
Indiana state troopers chased Arthur nearly 35 miles down I-64, but the joyride came to an end when he hit the stop-sticks and blew the tires.
Police are still wondering why he stole the truck.
"You have no idea, there may have been some mental issues, we're just not 100% sure at this point," said Sgt. Todd Ringle of the Indiana State Police.
No one was injured, but Arthur was taken to Jasper Memorial Hospital for a mental evaluation.
He will then be taken to the Dubois County Jail.
He has been charged with resisting law enforcement, theft, and possession of stolen property.
