A Florida man picked the wrong car to steal.

He hopped in with his backpack ready to roll to Orlando. But then the vehicle wouldn't start.

That gave the owner a chance to run out and hold the suspect until the cops came, according to

Aldrick Markcus Jones, 22, was hoping to drive to Orlando and take a Greyhound to West Palm Beach, police say.

But then the Clermont man ran into car trouble in Minneola. He was taken to Lake County jail on Friday.
