A 55-year-old Georgia man experienced karma almost immediately Monday morning after he allegedly stole a beer truck. Police responded to a Circle K in Columbus after getting a report of a stolen 18-wheel Coors Light semi; the truck's driver left it running while he ran into the Circle K, WRBL reports. Police ended up chasing suspect Gregory Miller in the truck, WTVM reports, and they caught up with him at a nearby Bojangles restaurant. Miller exited the truck in an attempt to flee police ... and the truck ran over his leg. He was arrested and also taken to a hospital for a "serious wound," possibly in the form of a "break to his right leg." (More beer stories.)
