CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A man was charged on Thursday for stealing a car that he had run into earlier that night.

According to police reports, Christopher Burks, 18, was riding his bike on Vine St. on Sunday when he accidentally ran into a 1997 Chevrolet Venture. Burks was thrown from his bike, but got up and ran to the car that hit him.

Once in the car, Burks told the driver to drive away. Instead, the woman driving the vehicle left and went on foot.

Burks then took the car and drove away himself. Police found him later that night.

Burks is currently in jail, waiting his court date.
