GARNER, N.C. (AP) – A North Carolina man has been accused of stealing a street sweeper and using it to drive doughnuts around a shopping mall.

Garner police told local media outlets that 39-year-old Jason Lee Robinson of Raleigh was arrested Sunday and charged with larceny, driving while impaired and hit and run.

Authorities say Robinson took the $50,000 vehicle while its driver was emptying trash cans on Saturday night. Police say he then used it to drive in circles around a Garner shopping mall parking lot, damaging a curb, bushes and another vehicle.

Robinson was caught after the street sweeper ran over a median and came to a stop. It wasn’t immediately known if he had an attorney.
