The local press is calling it a morality tale. We here at Legal Grounds are calling it business as usual.
Shortly before the season of giving and getting began, a man in Galveston, Texas, stole a car. This is indeed business as usual. The twist is he brought it back about five minutes after taking it. Why? There was a child in the back seat.
An unnamed woman and her boyfriend decided to go fishing the week before Thanksgiving down in Galveston, reports The Daily News. Deciding that the weather was too cold for her two-year-old, the woman returned the boy to the car, strapped him into the seat and left the heater (and thus, the car) running while she went to do the more important job of helping her boyfriend with the fishing tackle.
