Around 2:45 a.m. on Friday, a too-drunk woman hanging on Sutter Street was in need of a place to crash. Her friend, a local barkeep, gave her the keys to his car so she could pass out in the back seat. Later on, the bartender walked outside and observed that his car was gone. Very un-Dude! He called the cops.
Now, we know what you're thinking. Drunk lady cruised off for a little action. Or her own bed. Or Some french fries. Nope. Just when it seemed things couldn't have gotten much worse for this lady — after all, she was drunk and passed out in the back of somebody's car — she was unknowingly kidnapped by an oblivious car thief.
Apparently some 50-year-old guy saw the keys in the car, got in, and headed for a gas station. That's where the inebriated passenger came to and spooked the thief, who took off sprinting down Lombard Street, according to a police report
