Worst Date Ever? Florida Man Steals Woman's Car During Movie

Categories: WTF Florida
Perhaps she was looking to give someone the key to her heart, but instead on a recent date a Florida woman gave her paramour the keys to her car during a movie. He ended up stealing the vehicle, and when she called him, he laughed about it. Talk about a dating horror story.

Michael Pratt, a 27-year-old resident of New Port Richey, was on a date with an unidentified 35-year-old woman from Zephryhills, according to the St. Pete Times. The two were watching a movie when Pratt asked for her car keys. He had left something in the car he needed to fetch, he explained.

Pratt never came back.

The woman called him. His reply: "I stole your car." He laughed and hung up.

>The 2012 Ford Focus she had been driving was actually a rental, and the woman continued to try to reach Pratt for two more days before finally contacting police.

Four days later, he finally let her know he had abandoned the car in a New Port Richey Walmart parking lot. Police found and arrested Pratt, who had previously served time in prison for grand theft auto.

No word on what movie the two had been seeing, but our money is on a double bill of Gone in 60 Seconds and He's Just Not That Into You.

But the guy looks so classy...


Hmm, how does the saying go? – Keep your friends close but keep your enemies/soon to be ex boyfriends closer. Shouldn’t you be going on a date with Michael sometime soon too?http://scallywagandvagabond.co...


As a rule, stay away from guys who look like Vanilla Ice's brother


as a rule stay away from guys with neck tats.  Sam Shields may be the example because his is  a super bowl ring...
