WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah -A Utah driver rammed a sheriff’s patrol car on purpose and officers aren’t even upset. West Valley City police say a man posted an ad asking for a massage.

When he showed up at the appointed meeting place, instead of finding a woman police said a 21-year-old man hopped into the truck, flashed a gun and told the victim to drive.

Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Lt. Jason Johnson said the driver tried to stay calm but saw an opportunity to escape when he pulled up next to a sheriff’s deputy.

Johnson said the man hit the patrol car, jumped out of the truck and started yelling. Officers quickly arrested the gunman.

Johnson said a little damage to a vehicle that can be repaired is better than anyone getting hurt.

    protectandserve1, I didn't mean to sound disrespectful to you, and if I did, I sincerely apologize. On a lighter note, wouldn't you like to be there when he tries to explain this to his insurance company AND his wife ?!?!? I can only imagine .......

    protectandserve1, they probably traded off the solicitation charge for testimony against the armed robber. Besides, which guy is the one that needs to be incarcerated more, the john or the robber ??

    WOW! Great, I personally know what it's like to be held at gunpoint, and quick thinking can save your life. Glad the driver is ok, he should make sure where and with whom, he's going to get a massage from next time! =)
