One of the worst dates in history started when Kelton Griffin went to an unidentified woman's house to take her out in Memphis, Tennessee.

"He just out of the blue texted me and asked me to go out", Pugh said.

The godsister texted the original date from the movies to let her know what was happening. Pugh told WREG they used Global Positioning System on her godsister's phone in order to track them, and they wound up at a drive-in movie theater, where Pugh confronted Griffin on his second date of the night. Griffin didn't drive, so the pair ended up in Pugh's auto.

When the couple stopped at a gas station, Griffin drove away while the woman went inside to buy cigarettes. Hours later, Pugh says a friend sent her a text saying Griffin had just asked her out.

"She actually paid their way to get in the drive-in just so I could get my vehicle back", Pugh told WREG.

Pugh, whose mother came to pick her up, used the Global Positioning System on her godsister's phone to tail Griffin. "He didn't even have any money", Pugh told WREG. She did, and when Pugh came back outside, Griffin - and her auto - were gone.

Griffin was in the driver's seat and police arrested him and charged him with theft of property.

It's not his first arrest. In 2016, police said he and two other men ate out before robbing a restaurant.

"I hope he's in jail for a long time. I never want to speak to him ever again", she said.
