A Sacramento man named Zachary Samaha, 22, allegedly stole a police car on Saturday night before driving to an A-1 liquor store to buy a 40-ounce bottle of malt beer, from which he took a swig as he headed out of the store.

Moments later, Samaha was taken down by a local man who made a citizen’s arrest and held him on the ground before cops arrived. The good Samaritan, identified as Chris Marzan, had spotted the patrol car swerving with its headlights off and then hitting a telephone pole. Marzan called 911 to report the crash when he saw Samaha get out of the vehicle wearing sweatpants and no shoes. “I was concerned that he was going to come out with one of the weapons in the vehicle,” he said. Samaha made off with the patrol car while officers were responding to an incident nearby.
