Teen Fails In Attempt To Steal Blake Bortles' Truck

Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles stopped a teenager who attempted to steal his truck, according to First Coast News. The residence is owned by Jacksonville Jaguars' center Brandon Linder, ESPN reported. Surveillance video showed Horton taking Bortles' wallet from the truck and witnesses say the teen tried to drive away in Bortles' F-150 but was boxed in by other cares so he instead made a decision to enter the home.

But, according to the police report, the National Football League quarterback did neither. Blake and Jags lineman Chris Reed were all at a party at the Jacksonville Beach home of offensive lineman Brandon Linder when they noticed a odd young man skulking around the house. Bortles told police nothing appeared to have been taken.

But he couldn't make his escape as the auto was boxed in by other vehicles.

Witnesses told police the act was caught on the home's surveillance video, and Horton seemed to have an affinity for the vehicles parked in the driveway.

The Tripura Chief Minister also stated that mechanical engineers should not opt for civil services, but civil engineers should. In fact, Tagore had repudiated his Knighthood in protest against the Jalianwalla Bagh massacre in 1919.

Footage allegedly shows the suspect stealing Blake's wallet - and then attempting to leave with the truck. but he was boxed in by other cars and couldn't get out.

Anyway, the report adds Horton was arrested for the trifecta of trespassing, burglary, and grand theft. When asked why he was at the party, Horton claimed he was searching for his ex-girlfriend, but no actual guests of the party had any connection to him.

Bortles and two of his friends held Horton under "close watch" until police arrived, according to WJXT-4. Neighbors said he lives there with his parents.
