Naked man hijacks the QuizLaw Mailbag

mailbag.jpgCatching up with some old e-mails in the QL mailbag, I found two story links from reader Elizabeth S. that are certainly worthy of some QuizLaw attention. First, there’s the brilliant Connecticut criminal who tried to break into an unmarked police car.

While there were two troopers inside the car.

To be fair, the car apparently had tinted windows so it’s possible that the brilliant criminal just didn’t see that the car was occupied, but that doesn’t make the story any less amusing.

Of course, that’s got nothing on this Las Vegas story:

A naked man was arrested Tuesday morning after hijacking a Citizens Area Transit bus.
Las Vegas police said the man, 35-year-old Charles P. Sell, was first seen stealing a beer at the 7-Eleven on the corner of Lamb Boulevard and Washington Avenue about 8 a.m.
An officer arrived at the scene and the man fled, a police spokesman said.
Sell then climbed onto the back of a moving CAT bus traveling east on Washington, broke one of the back windows with his fists, and climbed in.
He threw the driver off the bus and drove it about 200 yards before jumping off, according to police. An officer climbed aboard and stopped it.
Sell was arrested and taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation before being booked at the Clark County Detention Center on felony charges of robbery, grand larceny and malicious destruction of private property, according to police.
He was being held on $14,000 bail.
Police said the man was possibly on drugs during the incident.

Possibly on drugs? You think?
