The owner of a nearby shop confronted the man who was trying to break in around 11 pm on January 28. He then fled the scene and was hit by an oncoming car while crossing the road.
The driver of the car is not in any trouble because police say it's the suspect's fault, reported fox23.com.
The man is not seriously hurt, according to police, but he did go to the hospital. Officials took the suspect to jail once he had been treated.
