SCOTT COUNTY, Ind. - A man was arrested on several felony charges Saturday after Indiana State Police said he took a man who was trying to sell his car via Craigslist on an unwanted joyride.
Just after 4:30 p.m., a southern Indiana man who listed his 2007 Dodge Charger for sale on Craigslist was contacted by another man interested in buying the car.
After exchanging information, the potential buyer, Marcus Forbes, 25, of Louisville, Ky., drove to the seller's home in Scottsburg, Ind., to close the deal.
Once Forbes arrived at the seller's home, he allegedly waited for several hours for a family member to bring him money to purchase the car. While waiting, Forbes and the seller went for a test drive. During the test drive, the seller asked Forbes to drive back to his home, but he ignored him and continued onto Interstate 65.
After asking Forbes several times to stop the car, the armed victim brandished his handgun and used his
cellphone to call police.
ISP officers were able to stop the car on I-65 south near mile marker 25 where Forbes was arrested and taken into custody at the Scott County Jail.
Forbes was charged with criminal confinement, conversion, attempted theft, and false informing.
The man selling the car was not hurt.
