Blake Bortles Reportedly Stops Thief At Jaguars House Party

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles was picked without being on the field. Apparently, Bortles left his truck unlocked with the keys inside.

Horton was taken into custody and charged with burglary, trespassing and grand theft, according to police. Horton was caught on video trying to steal Bortles' truck.

While many would cut their losses and merely abscond with the wallet at that point, Horton-for whatever reason-decided to go inside and join the party, leading to his capture.

Wednesday brought a new twist, though, when the quarterback helped police arrest a would-be thief who wound up in the house where Bortles and some Jaguars teammates were having a party.

An 18-year-old by the name of Joseph Horton found his way to the house and crashed the party.

Horton then tried to drive away in Bortles' auto, but failed to evade the other cars parked in the driveway, then parked it and got out, witnesses said.

Surveillance footage at the home caught the thief on camera and allegedly shows the suspect taking Bortles' wallet and attempting to steal the auto. Bortles said that nothing appeared to have been removed from the wallet. He got into the truck and turned it on, moving the truck just a little forward and a little back, but numerous cars were blocking the driveway at the time. Horton got out and looked around before walking into the house. Horton then walked into the residence and was asked who he was. Making his way inside Linder's house, Horton found his way upstairs, where guests confronted the unknown visitor and called police to the scene, the report stated.
