Fleeing shoplifter forgets son

AMSTERDAM: A shoplifter looking to make a quick getaway from a Dutch supermarket after stealing a packet of meat left police a crucial piece of evidence – his 12-year-old son.

In his haste the 45-year-old thief made a solo dash to his car, batting away a supermarket worker who had flung himself on the vehicles’ bonnet in a bid to stop the escape.

Woman put seatbelt on case of beer but not on baby

Investigators say a woman accused of drunk driving had a case of beer buckled up safely, and a one year old girl sitting in the backseat without a seatbelt or car seat.

On Sunday a deputy saw a car drive through a red light and swerve back and forth over the centre lane on U.S. 1 South. The deputy stopped the car.

Investigators say the woman, who identified herself as Tina Williams, smelled of alcohol. According to the report, Williams told the deputy she never had a license and was running out of gas.

Police: Child takes bus, leads chase

The Associated Press

A 10-year-old boy took a school bus and led police on a chase along a rural highway, according to police.School officials had spotted lights coming from the bus yard around 11 p.m. Friday night, and reported the bus stolen. Officers from three counties, four towns and Arkansas State Police began chasing the bus and its driver.

Despite road spikes set up to slow the bus, the bus kept traveling north toward Little Rock along U.S. 65 through Desha and Lincoln counties, then into the next county of Jefferson.

“Be advised, he missed them all. We’re now coming into town. Speed’s at 25 miles an hour,” officers said over a radio scanner.

About 44 miles later, the bus slowed down enough for a sheriff’s deputy to make the stop in Pine Bluff, and officers discovered their suspect was a child.

They cuffed the boy and took him into custody, then later released him to his parents. It wasn’t known whether the child would face charges.

School officials said he had been part of a group caught on camera trying to pull the same prank last month, according to KATV television station in Little Rock.
