CORPUS CHRISTI, TX (KRIS) - A man lost his wallet Monday night, and nearly lost his life trying to get it back minutes later.
It all happened on the Harbor Bridge just after 6:00 pm.
Police say after picking up a prostitute along Leopard, a man took her to North Beach to "receive his services", and when it was over, she grabbed his wallet and jumped into a truck waiting for her.
The guy chased the black Chevrolet pickup onto the harbor bridge, and cornered it with his car near the base of the bridge.
But after getting out of his own car to confront the people in the pickup, the truck took off and hit him, then kept going.
He was actually lucky not to be struck again, or run over, by a second car.
The man's ankle was pretty banged up, and police thought he was going to the hospital, but he apparently refused further treatment and instead limped back to his car and took off.
Police never caught up with the black pickup involved.
Vesely said the man would not be arrested for the apparent prostitution activity.
