The Orange County Sheriff's Office said it arrested the suspect on Monday when he parked the car he was driving, which police said was stolen. Officers with an auto-theft unit were trailing him when he stopped at a hardware store to buy a welder's mask so that he could view the eclipse safely.
He was arrested standing next to the stolen car, wearing the welding mask, with his eyes on the sky. And then, with his hands in the cuffs.
It's unclear whether the 22-year-old has been charged, but police may be holding him where the sun doesn't shine.
