Prosecutors have charged a West Valley City man for taking off in someone else's truck so he could convince his ex-girlfriend not to get married that day.
The 30-year-old man was charged Thursday with unauthorized control of a vehicle for an extended time in 3rd District Court. If convicted, he would face a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
On Jan. 18, the man was pacing in front of a 7-Eleven at 700 E. 7800 South in Midvale, waiting for a ride to take him to his ex, according to the charges. He would later tell police that he had taken methamphetamine the day before and hadn't slept or eaten since.
