This edition of Stolen from the Headlines covers a guy who went for a Sunday drive at the airport, a couple who threw their gas grill in the back seat before takeoff, the usual citizens who had world news to report, and a guy who somehow managed to total two parked cars.
Down at the Runway
Originally reported by Fox8Live.com
Slidell, Louisiana, police have arrested a man who was driving erratically and doing “donuts” on the Slidell airport runway. Officers were called to the airport just before noon on Sunday.
According to police, witnesses say 49-year-old John Robertson of Kilmichael, Mississippi, drove his pickup truck onto the runway and began doing “donuts".” Afterward, the truck became stuck in a ditch.
When officers arrived on scene, he told them that he was “just being stupid.” Robertson was arrested for reckless operation of a motor vehicle. Officials at the Slidell airport are working to determine how Robertson got onto the runway.
“Just being stupid” seems to cover it.

Bentley, Rolls-Royce Update
Originally reported by Yahoo! News
Police reports indicate a 32-year-old man has been arrested after he allegedly rammed his car into two luxury vehicles at a Washington car dealership, causing more than $500,000 in damage.
Police say officers responded to Bellevue Bentley on Sunday night and detained the Seattle man.
They found a Bentley and a Rolls-Royce significantly damaged. The dealership owner said the estimated value of both was over $500,000.
Two witnesses told police that they saw the driver of a Honda ram the unoccupied parked cars multiple times. Police say the suspect told officers he had not slept in about three days and that he may have had a panic attack. The dealership owner told police that the cars would likely be a total loss. The suspect was arrested for malicious mischief.
We suspect the sleepless Seattle man’s panic attack occurred after he heard about the $500,000 in damage.
