Police: Oklahoma man says he stole Pepsi truck to get to the airport

TULSA, Okla. –  Authorities say an Oklahoma man stole a Pepsi truck in order to get to the airport as the driver was unloading soda in the back.

The driver jumped out of the back when he felt his rig move, and a trail of sodas spilled out as the truck drove off.

Police say Steven Hart told them he was trying to get to the airport after an argument with his girlfriend. The girlfriend says he was searching for her.

Police say that when they caught up to the truck stopped in traffic, Hart jumped out and started to run off. Hart was arrested as the rig rolled into the back of a school bus. No children were aboard.

Hart is being held on pending charges that include larceny and attempted escape from the county jail as he was being booked into custody.
