Vancouver man climbs into convertible, claims it as his

Police are pursuing mischief-related charges against the man

A Vancouver man is looking at mischief charges after climbing into an open convertible and claiming it as his own.

Police said they were called to the Sunset Beach parking lot Sunday night by the car’s owner, who said the man had gotten in and refused to leave.

When police arrived, they asked the 36-year-old man to get out. He would not, and told officers it was now his car. Police shot him in the leg with a bean bag shot.

He was treated on scene by paramedics, despite refusing any medical care, and taken to jail.
