Even though he admitted to it, we're sure police won't be charging a California man with grand theft auto since his actions helped foil a robbery that was in progress. According to ABC News, an unnamed employee of a Burger King in Stockton, CA snuck out the back when two men entered the store with guns and demanded money.

Rather than running away, the quick-thinking employee stole the would-be getaway car and hid it around the block. Without a car, the attempted robbers left the store – although it isn't clear if they got any money – but didn't get far. Police soon found the suspects hiding in a field near the fast-food restaurant and arrested Gabriel Gonzalez and Jeremy Lovitt, charging them both with armed robbery. Scroll down for the video report.
