However, shortly before they arrived, they'd gotten a call from a driver about their car reportedly being stolen.  When the Deputies arrived, they found the driver (whose name was not released) nearby he was trying to flee the scene.

   Deputies quickly figured it out

Officers were able to easily figure out that the call on the stolen vehicle was from the man, and he was found to he was driving while impaired. He's not only facing DUI charges but False Reporting as well.

From the pictures, the vehicle appears to be a total loss.
