Wheels On The Bus Went Round And Round Until It Hit Spike Strips

OAKDALE, Calif. (July 19, 2013)--A shirtless man stole a transit bus Friday from a terminal in San Francisco and drove it 100 miles before he was caught.

California Highway Patrol officers put down road spikes to flatten the tires and stop the bus Friday.

The driver was facing a list of charges Friday evening including reckless driving, failure to yield, and grand theft.

Alameda County Transit spokesman Clarence Johnson said the bus was outfitted with a GPS system which allowed authorities to track it.

No one else was on the bus or was injured.

Johnson said the bus was parked, closed and locked at the terminal when it was stolen.
