An Alabama man accused of stealing a car got his 15 minutes of fame when video of his perp walk went viral — showing the motormouth rambling about running for mayor and even telling a TV reporter he’d “steal your heart, baby.”
Jeffrey McCants also admitted to swiping a Prichard Fire Department vehicle as police led him to an awaiting in handcuffs, the video by WALA shows.
“Hello, my name is Jeffrey McCants – I’m running for mayor of Mobile, Alabama, baby!” he says as he exits a building to a throng of reporters.
One asks McCants why he stole the vehicle — prompting him to try to woo the woman.
“Ma’am, if I had a woman like you I wouldn’t need to,” he answers, as officers nudge him along.
“But I took it because God told me to,” he adds.
“And guess what? God help me do everything. I steal everything, man – I’ll steal your heart, baby.”
