Jacksonville teen tried to steal former UCF QB Blake Bortles' truck: report

Teen crashes Blake Bortles party because he couldn't steal his truck: cops

National Football League quarterback Blake Bortles detained a teenage party crasher at a beach house shindig, only to later learn that the errant youth had stolen his wallet and attempted to steal his truck! The residence is owned by Jacksonville Jaguars' center Brandon Linder, ESPN reported.

A Jacksonville man tried to speed off with a Jacksonville Jaguars players 2017 Ford F-150, Action News Jax reported.

According to the police report, Joseph Horton was seen on video going through Bortles' truck and removing his wallet from the truck, which was later found on the ground.

The teen later entered the home, but the police were called because nobody at the party knew who he was, the report said.

The truck belonged to Bortles, according to the police report, and it was unlocked with the keys and wallet inside. Witnesses told police that home surveillance video documented the act, the station added. However, once the teen realized he would not be able to drive around other parked vehicles, he got out, looked around and went into the house. 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.

Horton was arrested and booked for burglary, grand theft, and trespassing.

Horton foolishly made a decision to go back inside the house, which gave the Jags players the opportunity to stop him until the police arrived.

Bortles and two teammates detained the 18-year-old until the police arrived. Neighbors said he lives there with his parents.
