Australia: An Australian woman woke up to find an intruder standing over her bed, with her bra on his head and a tub of ice cream and a can of tuna tucked under his arm.  The 61 year old woman then gave chase, hauling her catheter bag with her into the street, where the man was soon arrested.

Weird stuff… a bra, ice cream and tuna!

Naples, FL: They call it the tune-up to the tune of $50,000.  A Naples auto mechanic who took a client’s 2008 Porsche for a “diagnostics” test run flipped the car at 164 mph as he took it around a curve.  Kenneth Kasten, 50, walked away without a scratch, the Florida Highway Patrol reported.  But, he was charged with reckless driving and leaving the scene of a crash, and he has to make good on the damages.  Kasten got one break — he was not charged with theft, since the owner technically gave him the car when she dropped it off for service.

Slovenia: A Slovenian doctor who saved three dogs from being put to sleep for attacking humans was killed when the same dogs mauled him.  The bull mastiffs had been ordered put down after attacking several people.  After their owner died, the doctor had intervened to keep them alive, and they attacked him in his garden.

Just proves, no good deed goes unpunished!
