ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Washtenaw County sheriff's deputies arrested a 25-year-old man here last week for allegedly stealing a school bus, The Detroit News reports.

Police pulled over Josiah Daniel Curtis on Thanksgiving after receiving a call reporting that someone was driving erratically. Curtis told police that he was heading to Detroit to record music.

WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids, Mich., reports that Curtis attempted to steal seven school buses from a locked lot in Wyoming, Mich., crashing several inside the lot before he made off with one of the vehicles. He was able to get most of the way across the state until he was apprehended by authorities, according to The Detroit News. He was charged with receiving and concealing stolen property.
