JUPITER, FL(WFLX) - A 6-foot-11-inch basketball star from Colgate University was discovered in a man's garage yesterday, allegedly trying to steal a car so he could go to Miami.

According to police, John Brandenburg, a sophomore at Colgate and a center on the university's basketball team -- the Colgate Raiders -- asked the homeowner for beer because he wanted to party. Brandeburg allegedly broke a window in the man's Nissan.

Brandenburg, of St. Louis, admitted to breaking the window, according to police. Brandenburg allegedly offered to pay for the window.  

While in jail, deputies said Brandenburg rattled his cell repeatedly and pulled the door frame from the wall, causing damage totaling $500.
