(Police photo) (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.
