According to police, Garry Michael Wilson drove a stolen BMW Z3 just two blocks Saturday night before the car's manual transmission apparently couldn't take any more grinding punishment.
"He just couldn't drive the car," said police Lt. Justin Barley.
A resident on High Street alerted police when he heard someone in front of his house revving the stolen car's engine. Wilson got out of the car and fled on foot, the witness told police. The suspect was later arrested at a nearby house.
