Auburn Lacrosse Player Steals Truck, Tells Police He Wanted to See What ‘Grand Theft Auto’ was ‘Really Like’

Zack BurgessZachary Burgess, a freshman on Auburn’s lacrosse team, planned on watching his Tigers take on LSU Saturday, but things went south for his weekend long before Auburn set foot on the field.

Around 2:30 Saturday morning, Burgess was leaving a bar in Baton Rouge — strike one — when he jumped behind the wheel of an idling truck — strikes two through ten. He proceeded to drive the truck away from the bar, even though there was a woman in the passenger seat. As if anyone thought Burgess would practice defensive driving at this point, he sideswiped nine parked cars on his joyride.

And a joyride was exactly what Burgess was looking for — when questioned by police, he said he “wanted to see what it was really like to play the video game Grand Theft Auto.”

That’s like a two-star wanted level and he still got caught.  Amateur.
