Denver Police say on Thanksgiving Day, Faustino Ibarra broke into Allen's garage at his Los Angeles home, stole his custom 1996 Chevy Impala and drove it more than 1,000 miles to Colorado.
Ibarra's family found the car outside their home Friday night and called police.
Ibarra claims not only that Tim Allen wanted him to take the car, but also that Tim Allen is his father. Ibarra claims Allen adopted him years ago. Police think it sounds a little crazy too.
Los Angeles authorities are expected to extradite Ibarra to California to face charges. Denver Police claim Ibarra has stalked Allen for years, and they want him prosecuted.
