Not the exact way you want to start your 2019 a little less than three weeks into it.
When living in a big city, you’re always prone to some type of danger with the population being so high. Atlanta is definitely one of those places that breeds crime, especially with the amount of high-profiled people that tend to move there and ride around the city on a daily basis.
Calvin Ridley found out the hard way that stopping anywhere can get you got real quick.
The Atlanta Falcons WR revealed his car was stolen in the Buckhead district of Atlanta on Saturday night at a gas station, but noted that “there was no violence” involved in the taking. What didn’t help was the fact that he left the car running as he jumped out. Even though he had the keys, the robbers were still able to take the car since it was a push-to-start.
“Car Stolen. No such thing as a safe part of town so be careful. Grateful there was no violence, they just got me at the gas station & rode out,” he tweeted.
He has since deleted the tweet.
Ridley just completed his rookie season with the Falcons. He had 64 receptions for 821 receiving yards and 10 touchdown receptions.
