TRAMS, BIKES AND AUTOMOBILES.

A runaway tram rolled through Prague with the driver chasing it on a bicycle. the tram left its depot and travelled about half a mile on its tracks down a busy road before the authorities switched off the electricity, bringing it to a halt. The driver was slightly injured after trying to board the moving tram unsuccessfully.


Thief Michael Letendre,19, was arrested for stealing a bike and riding it to the police station. He told surprised officers in Edmonton he'd taken it because he was late for an appointment with his probation officer. He was sentenced to four months in jail.


When an angry French wife ordered her hubby to choose between her or his motorbike, she found herself up for sale. The advert said she came with 'a loud voice' and 'the ability to spend other people's money'. Unsurprisingly, she got on her bike and left her husband.


A bank robber was arrested in Petrich after he fell off his getaway motorcycle. He'd stolen £120,000 - which, in local currency, was so many notes that his loot became too heavy and caused him to lose his balance.


An inquisitive three-year-old wrecked a special fundraising competition in a shopping centre in Perth. Charity workers who had filled a car with plastic balls for a 'guess the number' contest looked on in horror as the toddler opened the car's doors, allowing all the balls to spill out.

These are great - especially that last one!

Poor guy who stole the bike. He was pretty much in a no win situation.
