BUTTE, Mont. -

A Butte man charged with taking a pickup truck from a bar parking lot told police he did it because he didn't feel like walking home.

The Montana Standard reports 34-year-old Steven Richard Jarvis II is charged with felony motor vehicle theft for taking a Ford pickup from outside a Butte casino early Monday.

Butte-Silver Bow Sheriff Ed Lester says the truck's owner found it parked along the street.

Jarvis was arrested as his home, just down the street from where the truck was parked. He was jailed with bail set at $25,000.
