Man steals dates car…

OMG…..What a total jerk! Seattle Party Bus Rentals would like to give him The Jerk of the Week award.

WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. — The truth is sometimes stranger than the fiction you see at the movies.

Deputies in Florida say a man stole a woman’s car while they were on a date at a Tampa area movie theater.

The St. Petersburg Times reports that  27-year-old Michael Pratt told the woman he needed to get something from the car while they were watching the movie.

She gave him her keys. When he didn’t return, she called him. Authorities say Pratt laughed, then told the woman he had stolen her car.

Pasco County Sheriff’s deputies say he now faces grand theft charges.

Car was a rental
The victim, who is 35, tried contacting Pratt for two days before calling the sheriff’s office, according to the paper. Pratt called her four days after the movie outing and said he dumped the car in a Walmart parking lot in New Port Richey, authorities said. Deputies found it and arrested Pratt on Wednesday. The car, a silver 2012 Ford Focus, was a rental.

According to the Times, Pratt previously served more than a year in prison for the same charge, as well as fraud, uttering forged bills and failing to return rental property.

He is in the Pasco County Jail. No attorney was listed on Pratt’s jail records.
