Man drives stolen car to court hearing to face stolen car charge

A Connecticut man who was to appear in court for stealing a car drove a stolen car to his hearing, the Hartford Courant reports.

Jonathan Rivera, 25, was in court Wednesday to defend against a first-degree larceny and tampering with a motor vehicle charge, which police handed him in February. As he waited for a judge to hear his case, Hartford Parking Authority flagged the car Rivera had driven to the courthouse as stolen. When Rivera left his hearing and tried to drive away, police stopped and arrested him.

Rivera was subsequently charged with second-degree larceny and taking a motor vehicle without the owner's permission.
