POSTED: Friday, August 28, 2009
FERNDALE, Mich. -- Police say a first date went from bad to worse when a Detroit man skipped out on the restaurant bill, then stole his date's car.
Twenty-three-year-old Terrance Dejuan McCoy was bound over Thursday to face trial in Oakland County Circuit Court on a charge of unlawfully driving away the woman's car, a five-year felony. McCoy waived a preliminary exam in the case.
Police say McCoy dined with the 27-year-old Southfield woman April 24 at Buffalo Wild Wings in Ferndale.
The Daily Tribune of Royal Oak reports the woman told police McCoy said he left his wallet in her car and asked for her keys. He then sped away in the 2000 Chevrolet Impala.
Police identified McCoy using a photo he earlier sent to the woman's cell phone, as well as his phone number.
