Teen Fails In Attempt To Steal Blake Bortles' Truck


Horton was taken into custody and charged with burglary, trespassing and grand theft, according to police.

What Bortles didn't realize at first was that he personally had been victimized by Horton. According to News4Jax.com, Bortles left his truck unlocked at a house party, which allowed Horton to get in there and snoop around. Horton couldn't get it out of a packed driveway and went inside.

The Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback and a number of his teammates were at a house party hosted by Brandon Linder on Wednesday night when some of them noticed a unusual man lurking around the house.

Bortles was attending a house party at teammate Brandon Linder's home when he noticed a man, Joseph Horton, that he didn't recognize.

An 18-year-old by the name of Joseph Horton found his way to the house and crashed the party. But Horton was boxed in by other cars around the house and couldn't make his escape. Bortles said that nothing appeared to have been removed from the wallet.

Surveillance video showed Horton sitting behind the wheel of the truck, starting it and moving it back and forth.

Oh, and after Horton gave police his address, a little research indicated that the residence is a multimillion-dollar home on the Intracoastal Waterway just a few blocks down the street, WJXT added. The man answered "Joe" and walked upstairs.

After they phoned police, Bortles and two of his friends stood guard over the teen to assure he wouldn't get away.

The teen later entered the home, but the police were called because nobody at the party knew who he was, the report said.
