At least his mind was in the right place. You gotta protect those eyes!
I REALLY HOPE THE CAR HE STOLE WAS AN ECLIPSE!
A suspected car thief’s run from the law ended when authorities say he pulled over to watch Monday’s solar eclipse, only to be nabbed by trailing deputies.
Jocsan Feliciano Rosado, 22, was being pursued by the Orange County Sheriff’s Auto Theft Unit when he allegedly pulled into a Kissimmee parking lot to purchase a welder’s mask to protect his eyes from the sun. Once back at his vehicle, Rosado proceeded to watch the eclipse, the sheriff’s department said.
“He never saw it coming,” authorities said of his arrest in a Facebook post on Monday.
“As Rosado was standing in the parking lot next to the stolen car, with the welding helmet on and looking up at the eclipse, deputies swooped in and made an arrest,” the sheriff’s department said.
“That only happens every 99 years,” the department joked, referencing the rarity of both Rosado’s arrest and Monday’s event, which was the first such coast-to-coast spectacle since 1918.
Meet Jocsan Feliciano Rosado.
This 22-year-old stole a vehicle and was being followed by the OCSO’s intrepid Auto Theft Unit.
Rosado parked the stolen car at Harbor Freight on Osceola Parkway in Kissimmee, and bought a welder’s mask to safely view the solar eclipse.

Nice looking helmet!
