He went from Smokey Robinson to Smokey and the Bandit in less than 30 minutes — a contestant on “X Factor” stole a car after his audition and went on a crazy chase before he was subdued.
Orrion Wilson from Florida — of course — was plum out of money after his audition near New Orleans. He didn”t have enough for bus fare, so he went to a gas station … lying in wait … until a chump left his car running and went inside for cigarettes or something. Wilson took off in the car and led cops on a 75-mph chase, which ended with the rusty trusty “pit maneuver.”
Wilson told authorities he did well in the audition and expected to return for round 2 in NYC, but needed some wheels to get there.
Wilson is still in custody.
If he doesn”t get on “X Factor” … he”s perfect for “Fast & Furious 7.”
