Sabrina Stiltner, 33, of Johnson City, Tenn., was arrested on suspicion of stealing a sport utility vehicle parked in front of a fire station.
She told police she was cold and tired of walking.
The car owner and a firefighter actually witnessed the theft and followed the SUV.
Stiltner was arrested en route to her home — which is three blocks away from the fire station.
Her driver’s license was revoked in 2010 after a DUI conviction.
