Soldier Arrested For Stealing Armored Vehicle From National Guard Base

Police tasered the suspect, who was identified as a military soldier, Virginia State Police spokeswoman Keeli Hill said during a news conference.

After being stolen, the vehicle made its way from Nottoway County to Richmond.

Keeli Hill said the unnamed soldier drove at about 45 miles per hour.

CBS reported Yabut was deployed to Afghanistan in 2008 an 2009, and that he was arrested without incident.

"The military vehicle - which is not a tank - was driven at a maximum speed of about 40mph (65kmh)", she said, adding that it belonged to the Virginia National Guard. Police blocked exits along Interstate 95 for the safety of the public during the incident with several people spotting the tank on Route 460 in Dinwiddie, Virginia, and on Interstate 85.

Geller stressed that the vehicle was not a tank and was not armed with any weapons.

According to the Virginia National Guard, Yabut's unit was conducting routine training at Fort Pickett when he drove away in the armored vehicle, which was not equipped with any weapons.

The suspect is now in state custody with charges pending.

In his court appearance, Yabut said the National Guard was his only source of income. Police couldn't stop it, so they ended up escorting it, sirens blaring, before Yabut stopped and got out near City Hall. The vehicle, either an M577- or M1068-series armored command vehicle in an overall sand color, with police in front and behind, clearly attempting to keep innocent bystanders out of the way.

Police reportedly tasered the man and took him into custody.
