A man is behind bars after authorities said he attempted to steal a man's vehicle, and when it didn't start, forced the victim –at gunpoint – to steal a second vehicle.

Jorden Tyler Meadows was arrested and charged with aggravated robbery, aggravated kidnapping and burglary of a vehicle on Saturday, Sept. 21 after authorities said he pointed his firearm at a man, who was staying at a hotel after Imelda floodwaters damaged his home, and attempted to steal the flood victim's car. The incident took place shortly after midnight Saturday in Winnie -- one of the hardest hit areas in southeast Texas.

When the man's car wouldn't start, Meadows reportedly would not allow the flood victim to leave, held him against his will and forced the man to steal a second vehicle, as he threatened his life with a gun, according to the Chambers County Sheriff's Office.

While walking towards a separate parking lot, the flood victim ran toward witnesses who were standing nearby and authorities responded.

Meadows attempted to flee behind the hotel, but was caught shortly after, officials said.

He was booked into the Chambers County Sheriff's Office.
