According to the victim, she was driving around  when she saw three teenagers flagging her down for help. The teens initially said they needed a ride, but then Bell pulled out a gun and demanded she get out of the car, WEAR-TV reported.

Fortuntely, all did not go as planned because when Bell hopped in the driver’s seat he realized the car had a manual transmission. The teens then fled on foot, according to Raw Story, leaving the victim and her almost-stolen car unharmed.

Bell was arrested after he was picked out of a photo lineup on Friday. He has been charged with theft, robbery and criminal mischief and is now held on $400,000 bond.
