Dealer sells car for wrong price. Has buyer arrested

Could this be the worst dealer experience ever?

A Chevy dealer mistakenly sold a customer a car for $5,600 less than they wanted to. When the purchaser refused to sign a new contract for a higher price, the dealer told the police he'd stolen the car.

A Virginia man spent four hours in jail after purchasing a Chevrolet Traverse from Priority Chevrolet in Chesapeake, VA. The dealer's sales staff accidentally sold the SUV to Danny Sawyer for $5,600 less than they should have, and when Sawyer refused to sign a new, more expensive contract for the correct amount, the dealership called the local police alleging the buyer had stolen the vehicle.
