53 year-old woman catches burglar less then half her age

A would-be burglar met his match when he tried to elude Margo Foster, a marathon runner with a black belt in karate who also knows kickboxing and kung fu. On Friday morning, the 53-year-old Lighthouse Point resident returned home from tennis practice to find an intruder rummaging through her bedroom.

Without thinking twice, she said in an interview, she bolted through the living and dining rooms and followed the startled man out to the backyard. Police said he had one of Foster's backpacks strapped on his shoulders, filled with her property. She wanted it back.
A seven-block-long chase, the two struggled for a few minutes, Foster in her white tennis skirt, before the burglar dropped the bag and started running again."Go ahead and run," the former yacht detailer said she yelled. "You're not going to get away from me. I've been running for 40 years."

I thought I must be mistaken, and I shut my eyes," Carrasco's nephew Pedro said. When I opened them again, my uncle was looking at me. I started to cry and ran to get something to open up the coffin to get him out." The man who "rose from the dead" said he was not in any pain, and only asked for a glass of water.

Driving naked, driver loses his g-friend and SUV.
A Seattle driver, Jan Peter Pawluskiewicz, 19, appeared in court Thursday. In that episode, a state trooper stopped a sport-utility vehicle about 1:20 a.m. he noticed the vehicle drifting across traffic lanes. When the trooper approached the couple inside, he found they both were naked and trying to stash an empty wine bottle.
The driver was charged with driving under the influence and reckless driving. Pawluskiewicz pleaded guilty to reduced charges of first- and second-degree negligent driving. King County District Court ordered 24 months of probation; a 90-day jail term, which was suspended; attendance at a DUI victims' panel; and fines that totaled $1,718.
His family presented documentation showing that his SUV has been donated to a charity. And, Jacke was told, the young man's girlfriend has left him."The price he paid at home was far greater than what he paid in court," said the judge. » Article here
