KATHIE J'S STUPID NEWS - PARAPLEGIC MAN STEALS A CAR

DEALERSHIP STUNNED

This is one of those crimes where it's really hard to be mad . . . you mostly just want to be impressed.

On Wednesday, a 28-year-old paraplegic man named Shamal Battice went into a car dealership in Ocala, Florida in his wheelchair.

He asked a salesman if he'd help lift him into a white 2009 Pontiac G6, just so he could see how it felt. Obviously, the salesman did it.

Once the man got inside, he locked the doors, started the car, pulled out a folding cane . . . and used it to HIT THE GAS and drive away.

The dealership called the cops, who caught the man after a brief chase.

He's facing a potential grand theft auto charge.
