Auburn Player Accused of Stealing Truck, Hitting 9 Parked Cars

Zach Burgess (Hoover, Ala.), a sophomore on the Auburn men's lacrosse team, was "arrested and charged with theft of a motor vehicle, hit-and-run (9 counts), and simple kidnapping" following an incident very early on Saturday morning in Baton Rouge, La. He was released on Sunday after posting an $80,000 bond.

Burgess reportedly got in a truck that was left running with a female passenger inside and attempted to drive away. With several cars blocking his way, he began ramming the vehicles. "During questioning Burgess allegedly told an officer that he 'wanted to see what it was really like to play the video game Grand Theft Auto.'"
