knightTimothy Frederick Knight (pictured), who was already facing auto theft charges, had no means of transportation to get to his latest court arraignment, so he did what he does best: steal a car to get there, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The 53-year-old San Francisco resident, who has seven prior convictions, was arrested last February 15th in Daly City on suspicion of possessing a stolen vehicle.  Knight was then released on a $50,000 bond for the theft charge and given a hearing date of April 3.

Prior to his hearing date, Knight, who does not own a car, reportedly stole a Honda vehicle in order to appear at his preliminary court hearing. Knight’s case was continued, so he allegedly got back in to the allegedly stolen wheels in an attempt to drive away from the courthouse.

What the convicted car thief did not know was that his stolen vehicle was rigged by the Vehicle Theft Task Force who had secretly placed a tracker on the car.

Reportedly, police noticed the Honda while it was parked and saw that the ignition had been punched and there was a screwdriver still laying on the floor.

Task Force agents arrested Knight as he tried to drive away from the courthouse.

Knight reportedly pleaded not guilty to the new car theft charges.  He appeared in court on Wednesday to set a June jury trial date and has to appear in court yet again on Friday for a preliminary hearing regarding previous charges.

For this latest caper, Knight has been placed behind bars and the bail has been doubled and then some at $165,000.

I guess old habits die hard!
