A man who took a car out for a test drive has been arrested in Wisconsin - after he allegedly kidnapped the car salesman and drove for over 1,000 miles.

So, he eventually got Kot.

Wasn't that a Seinfeld episode?

Isn't being in a car for 1,000 miles with a car salesman punishment enough?

He was clearly headed for Florida.

he was trying to get the farthest he could from a McDonalds

The salesman escaped fairly early on. Which raises the question, did he not report the theft immediately? If he did, why'd it take several hours to catch the guy?

So did the guy get a good deal on the car?

He should, it was a used car. Already had 1000 miles on it.

OK, in Janesville, headed for Canada? Between Wisconsin and Canada, there's this thing called Lake Superior, and even if you take the long way around, you have to go through Minnesota, in Favre season yet, which I wouldn't even wish on a Russian car thief.

Clearly Honda has some work to do on its Russian language satellite navigation system if it wants to capture this market.

He was charged with unarmed robbery. Just how did he drive 1000 miles with no arms?
