A Carjacker Tried to Steal a Car He Didn't Know How to Drive

Stealing a car isn't exactly like a scene from "Gone in 60 Seconds" -- especially if you don't know how to drive the car you're trying to steal.

A would-be car thief in Colorado Springs, Colorado, tried to steal a truck but had to abandon it because it had a manual transmission.

According to KMGH, the truck's owner told police a man with a gun tried to steal his truck but couldn't operate the stick shift.

Police managed to track him down about a third of a mile away from where he tried to steal the truck. They reportedly had to use a Taser to subdue him.
