A Good Samaritan in Arizona is facing charges after trying to do a good deed and help out the local police department.

Steven Engberg was walking down the street in Scottsdale, AZ when he noticed a police car with its emergency lights on just sitting and blocking a lane of traffic.

Thinking he would free up the roadway, Steve opened the door and got right in the squad's driver's seat.

He pulled the car around to a nearby parking lot, as police ran after what they thought was about to be a stolen police car. Once he got out and started walking again, police grabbed and arrested him. They had been on a call at a business, where they parked outside.

Steven Egberg was charged with Unlawful Means of Transportation and a DUI.
