Authorities: Woman sprays would-be car thief with gasoline

Authorities say a Georgia woman at a gas station doused a man in gasoline as he tried to steal her car

CONYERS, Ga. -- Authorities say a Georgia woman at a gas station doused a man in gasoline as he tried to steal her car.

WSB-TV reports the woman was pumping gas in her car Thursday outside Atlanta when the man approached the passenger door undetected.

The woman noticed the man once he was in the driver's seat. She pulled the gas nozzle and sprayed him with gasoline, which scared him off.

Thomas believes the crew has done this before and he's sure they'll try it again.

Authorities aren't identifying the woman.
