SALEM, Ore. (AP) – An Oregon State Police trooper pulled up next to a parked Marion County sheriff’s patrol car late Saturday expecting to talk to the deputy. Instead he found an 18-year-old passed out over the steering wheel. State police said the Ford Mustang had been stolen from the deputy’s home.

The Statesman Journal reported the sheriff’s office wasn’t aware it was stolen until it got a call from troopers.

The 18-year-old was jailed and released the next day on $2,500 bail. The Ford Mustang, used in a traffic safety team, was not damaged.

    Lucky thing he was tired and fell asleep. Who knows what might have happened if he went joyriding around town. We all know what happens when teenagers try to show off in front of their friends while driving fast cars.

    Good ol' police work, even when he didn't mean it. Just checking up on his friend. Glad they got a dumba** off the street, even if it WAS overnight.

    He may be have been a teenager at 18........ but that still makes him an adult in most states, including Oregon. The bond amount sounds a little low all things considered, a fact that never ceases to amaze me when I see what some other states do regarding bail/bond amounts. He should be looking at some kind of jail time by all accounts.

    Small bond amount......and will probably be followed up with a slap on the wrist. Teens have it lucky these days. No self discipline, let alone discipline from home or Government.
