He wanted his car back.
He got it back.
Joel Morton-Wilson was at work at Ohio State and came out to the Stadium West Lot to discover that his car was missing.
At first, he thought it had been towed, but then his spidey senses started tingling and he saw something out of the corner of his eye.
"My car was like 15 feet away. The people who had stolen it turned on the ignition and accelerated at me at about 25 miles an hour. They caught me in the head and shoulder," he said.
Joel was on the phone with police when the thieves came back. He was able to get away, but because he moved out of the way, the car's tire was flat after attempting to jump the curb.
That's right. Joel casually sidestepped the would-be vehicular murderers and then kept a cool head as they sped away. The police later arrested a minor for the crime with an active warrant for arrest.
"It was scary, but I live by [the phrase] ‘fear is a choice,' because if I was to have panicked and make a different decision at that time, it wouldn't have been that difficult for them to back up over me, roll over me or do any number of other things," he said.
Total Chad. There's not many things good that come out of Ohio (practically nothing, in fact), but I'll make an exception for this guy.
Here's the video with some of the 911 call:
Morton-Wilson was checked out on scene and again Wednesday to see if he was okay. He said he has minor injuries but is fine.
