… At Jags House Party

Blake Bortles — along with 2 of his Jacksonville Jaguars teammates — stopped an alleged thief from stealing the QB’s truck from a Florida house party … cops say.
It all went down late Wednesday night … Blake and Jags lineman Chris Reed were all at a party at the Jacksonville Beach home of offensive lineman Brandon Linder when they noticed a strange young man skulking around the house.
Once the guys realized he wasn’t an invited party guest … they tracked him down inside the home, stopped him and called police.
This is where things got crazy … cops checked the surveillance video from the home and saw the man walk up from the street and get into Blake’s black Ford F-150 truck, which was unlocked with the keys inside.
Footage allegedly shows the suspect stealing Blake’s wallet — and then attempting to leave with the truck … but he was boxed in by other cars and couldn’t get out.
The video shows the man — 18-year-old Joseph Horton — going back inside Linder’s house … and that’s when the players stopped him and held him until police arrived.
We’re told nobody got hurt — and Horton was ultimately booked for burglary, grand theft and trespassing.
