Assuming, of course, that you haven’t already given it to the gas station clerk.

Surprisingly enough, this did not happen in New Jersey. Back in April, Jacksonville, Florida ex-con Stuart Haywood racked up a $366 gas tab for 90 gallons of fuel at a local gas station, and then drove off without paying. Prior to pumping the gas, however, Haywood had presented his identification to the store clerk, promising he’d pay by check when he was finished pumping. When he fled the scene, he left his ID behind.

Despite the significant advantage his mistake gave law enforcement, Haywood managed to elude authorities for nearly 6 months to catch up with him. When he was finally arrested, he was charged with a misdemeanor theft of gas, a felony violation of parole. According to the report, Haywood was out on parole after serving a sentence for grand theft and auto theft. He is currently being held in the Duval County jail without bond.
