A Tennessee woman trying to be a Good Samaritan by helping a man in a wheelchair gets an unwelcome thank you-- one that resulted in a call to 911.

"No it wasn't repossessed; It's a black, one-legged man in my car," said the car’s owner on the call.

The woman says she knows the alleged thief. She offered him a ride when she saw him in a mall parking lot.

She loaded his wheelchair into the rental car trunk and took him to get food.

But when she stepped out of her car, the one-legged man climbed in the driver's seat and took off!

The car turned up in a parking lot, and police caught up with the thief.
