Vancouver Police arrested a man who they say test drove a car and took off with it.

The victim says he put his car up for sale on Craigslist, then met up with the suspect, Forrest Smith, for a test drive.

He says Smith took the car and never returned.

The victim posted surveillance video he had online, and someone recognized Smith.

Smith brought the car back and said he just took it to meet with his girlfriend, and then ran.

The victim and his friends saw Smith and police said they beat him up and held him until police arrived and arrested him.
