Man arrested for stealing Bay Area transit busJuly 19, 2013 @ 3:32 pm
OAKDALE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a shirtless man who allegedly stole a transit bus from a San Francisco terminal drove it 100 miles before being arrested.
California Highway Patrol officers put down road spikes to flatten the tires and get the bus to stop on Friday.
The driver faces charges including reckless driving, failure to yield, and grand theft.
Alameda County Transit spokesman Clarence Johnson tells KPIX-TV ( http://cbsloc.al/1246qSI) that the bus was outfitted with a GPS system which allowed authorities to track it.
No one was on the bus or was injured. Johnson says the bus was parked, closed and locked at the terminal when it was stolen.
