Suspected car thief tells officers he’s Matthew McConaughey
GEORGES TOWNSHIP, Pa. — A suspected car thief tried to pass himself off as Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey when Pennsylvania police found him Sunday, according to WTAE.
Officers got a call about a suspicious person prowling outside of a home in Georges Township and ringing the doorbell, police said.
When they got there, they allegedly found 46-year-old Troy Miller sitting in the resident’s car. When asked for identification, Miller would only tell officers he was the 48-year-old Oscar winner and star of the “Dallas Buyers Club.”
Officers weren’t fooled – police arrested Miller on charges of attempted theft of a motor vehicle, false identification to law enforcement authorities and loitering and prowling at night.
Miller was booked into the Fayette County Prison on a bond of $500. No trial date had been set as of Wednesday afternoon.
