    Probably will be dropped, but I think it falls within the law.

    Not sure carjacking applies here. Don't get me wrong, I would assume the guy owed money, but the fact is that he escaped and was being chased by and armed individual. I would think, by reading this poorly written article was that the guys initial intention was not to steal the car but he was wanting out of there. the driver immediately exited the vehicle. The guy did what most anyone would that was being chased by a gunman and unarmed. He left. He did not threaten the driver or forcibly remove her from the car and he drove straight to a Police Department for help. I think this is just one of those oh S__t moments and I am sure that the person that lost her car will probably not push the issue after learning all the facts.
