(Newser) – First, there was the guy who stole a car to get to court for his drug case. But the San Francisco Chronicle has got that topped: This time, it's a convicted car thief accused of stealing a car to get to court to face ... yet more car-theft charges. Timothy Knight got busted last month on charges of possessing a stolen car and was told to report to court on April 3. But without transportation, police say he resorted to old habits and stole a Honda Accord the day before his court appearance. He did, in fact, make it to court on time, but police were waiting for him.

Just think how different his life would be if he had learned how to ride BART.
