Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

German man torches car to protest high gas prices
A German man doused his BMW with gasoline and torched it on Friday in protest at skyrocketing fuel costs, police said. The unemployed 30-year-old man drove the black 1995 BMW 3-series sedan onto the lawn outside Frankfurt's convention center grounds at about 7:30 a.m., police spokesman Karlheinz Wagner said.
He then jumped out, emptied a canister of gas over the vehicle, and set fire to it, Wagner said.
By the time the fire department got to the scene, the car was entirely burned out.
The Bavarian man, whose name was being withheld because he has not been charged with a crime, told police that gas prices were so high he could no longer afford to drive the vehicle.
As in many countries, gasoline prices have risen steadily in Germany; a liter of regular gasoline now costs about euro1.55, or $9.40 per gallon.
Man who tried to pay bond in dirty cash jailed
A man who tried to pay a $100 bond in dirty money will spend a week in jail for contempt of court. A Scott County judge sent the man to jail on Thursday.
The man was arrested in May for driving a truck with a defective tire. Instead of paying a fine, he opted for a trial and a judge required him to post bond.
On Thursday, he brought a box of crumbled money and a bucket of pennies to the clerk of court's office.
Clerk of Court Julie Carlin said there were bugs in the box and the pennies were covered in an unknown substance, and they used rubber gloves the count the cash.
Teen Decapitated by ride at Georgia Six Flags
A teenager was decapitated by a roller coaster after he hopped a pair of fences and entered a restricted area Saturday at Six Flags Over Georgia, authorities said.
Six Flags officials are uncertain why the 17-year-old from Columbia, S.C. scaled two six-foot fences and passed signs that said the restricted area was both off-limits and dangerous to visitors, spokeswoman Hela Sheth said in a news release.
Authorities were investigating reports from witnesses who said the teenager jumped the fences to retrieve a hat he lost while riding the Batman roller coaster, said Cobb County police Sgt. Dana Pierce. Police have declined to release the teenager's name until an autopsy is completed.
Six Flags said it closed the roller coaster after the Saturday afternoon accident out of respect for the teen's family. The ride was expected to reopen on Sunday, according to a Six Flags news release.
Police said the ride was going full-speed 50 mph when the teen was struck.

City changes mind, says take off your pants
In a turnaround, Aurora has rescinded its policy requiring lifeguards to wear pants.
Half the lifeguard staff at Aurora reservoir quit after the city required them to wear breakaway pants while on duty. Aurora said the policy was designed to protect its lifeguards against sun exposure and West Nile virus.
The lifeguards who quit said the new uniform could put swimmers’ lives at risk.
"It takes an average of four to five seconds to take the pants off to get into the water, or if we try to get into the water with the pants, it’s going to be dragging and we’re not going to really be able to swim and get them back to shore," lifeguard Greg Huston said.
