The man suspected of burglarizing Jillian Michael’s home and stealing her Bentley crashed the car so hard, he knocked a light pole off its foundation, TMZ is reporting. The man broke into the personal trainer’s home late Monday night while the ‘Biggest Loser’ personality was sleeping. When she woke up on Tuesday morning, the ‘Losing It With Jillian’ host noticed several items were missing, including her car keys and the Bentley.

Hours after Michaels filed a police report, police found someone driving the car. The driver speed away, and immediately crashed into the light pole. A second car was also damaged in the crash.

The driver was then arrested on the scene for driving a stolen vehicle. He has since been charged with several crimes, including first-degree burglary with a person present, grand theft, grand theft auto, unlawful driving of a vehicle, evading an officer and hit-and-run. He was also charged with two counts of resisting an officer.

After being charged, the suspect pled not guilty on all charges. He’s scheduled to return to court later this month.
