Thevideo shows the hitchhiker jumping out of the passenger seat of the car onto the side of the highway. The YCSO deputy stops and arrests the man, not knowing he is just a hitchhiker and not related to the crime.
Freeman remains in custody on a litany of felony charges and is held without bond, according to YCSO. A second suspect, who was seated in the back of the vehicle, was also arrested.
YCSO says the passenger who escaped from the stolen car is not being prosecuted because he simply hitched a ride with the driver and another man.
