Over the weekend, some kid—loitering near the Pittsburgh set of The Dark Knight Rises, incidentally—decided to try to carjack a plainclothes police detective.
And how did our young criminal intend to mastermind this heist? Why, he simply opened the door, jumped into an unoccupied seat, and ordered the undercover detective out of his vehicle.
And then, according to the Associated Press (via Buzzfeed),
The officer drew his gun and ordered the suspect, 21-year-old Micah Calamosca, out of the car. He says the suspect told him he was part of filming for The Dark Knight Rises and that taking the vehicle was in the script.
Oh, in the script, you say? Smooth save.
And now, for the DVD bonus feature: As it just so happens, the police detective was, at that moment, on the lookout for someone matching Calamosca’s exact description. How nice, then, that the criminal hopped right into the police car.
