Investigators say he took off with a woman inside on Saturday night. She managed to jump out before burgess left the parking lot.
Police say he hit several cars and gates before stopping the totaled pickup truck about a mile from the bar.
Police say burgess told them he wanted to see what it was like to be in "grand theft auto" and hit several vehicles while driving fast.
We're getting rain well ahead of our cold front. Expect to need that umbrella on and off all day and tonight, too. A bit messy, unfortunately, for First Friday activities.
With the blast of cold air that follows, we'll probably have a dry day on Saturday, and the chance of a Sunday wintry mix into the afternoon and evening. A light coating could occur for some before a changeover to rain. Stay tuned!
