Are you kidding me?

Well, this is frustrating. 

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett had his truck stolen from a local Chevrolet dealership earlier this year while he was doing a radio interview with 93.7 The Fan.

Before long, police would arrest 60-year-old Christopher Carter, who simply drove off with the quarterback's vehicle. They found the vehicle in front of the perpetrator's home after responding there to a domestic incident. Both the vehicle and Pickett's playbook were returned. 

However, the charges against Carter have been dismissed by District Judge Jeffrey L. Herbst. 

Via CBS News: 

"The judge ordered Carter to pay several thousand dollars worth of restitution money. Carter had been facing charges of receiving stolen property, theft by unlawful taking and unauthorized use of automobiles and other vehicles.

According to court records, Monroeville police responded to the dealership on Route 286 on the afternoon of May 24 for a stolen 2023 navy Hyundai Genesis.

The criminal complaint said Pickett was doing advertising at Bowser Chevrolet of Monroeville when employees saw a man speed off in Pickett's SUV onto Route 286 towards Plum. Police said employees saw the suspect walking around the showroom for a while before he allegedly stole the vehicle.

Court paperwork said surveillance video showed the suspect arriving at the dealership in his personal vehicle, which he left behind. By looking up the registration, police said they identified the suspect as 60-year-old Carter. 

Pickett's playbook was in the SUV at the time of the theft, but it was retrieved, along with the SUV, from Carter's driveway. The police went to his home for some sort of dispute with his neighbors."

Needless to say, this is a rather disappointing outcome for a crime that was committed by a criminal being allowed to get off with a slap on the wrist. Surely this won't empower any future criminal behavior or anything, right?
