INDIANAPOLIS - A drunk man took a brief joy ride in a local jail van overnight and later got to ride to the jail in handcuffs, although he may not have ridden in the same van.
Indianapolis police (IMPD) said at roughly 9 p.m. Wednesday, a Hamilton County sheriff's deputy had a jail van parked in the lot of a church in the 900 block of North Wallace Avenue on the east side of the city.
Investigators said a man broke into the van, got ahold of some spare keys and drove off.
He drove three blocks in the van, police said.
We're told local citizens noticed the marked van was being driven by someone who shouldn't be driving it, and called police.
The man was arrested and preliminarily charged with theft, resisting arrest and public intoxication.
