Man Sidetracked by Tater Tots During Suspected Robbery Attempt

The man was awoken when a woman tried to escape her home. A suspected burglary attempt in California went awry last week when authorities say the man got side-tracked by, of course, tater tots. A homeowner in Petaluma went downstairs Thursday afternoon and found an unfamiliar man, identified by police as James Adams, asleep on her sofa after he apparently enjoyed a snack of frozen tater tots, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. After calling the police, she tried to leave her house but accidentally awoke the man. Adams, 44, who was said to have a long criminal history, was apprehended by authorities as he tried to leave the yard. Get the full story here.

Utah Man Lead Police on Chase Onto a Salt Lake International Tarmac

It was routine traffic stop near the airport at about 3 a.m. “The bumper of the vehicle was dragging across the ground,” said airport spokeswoman Bianca Shreeve. After an officer from the Airport Authority pulled the vehicle over, he got the man’s driver’s license. But as soon as he started walking back to his patrol car, the driver sped away. During the chase, the man drove through a fence and onto airport property and then onto the tarmac. Luckily no flights taking off or landing at the airport, he ended up crashing through another fence on the south end to get out. The chase ended on Wingpointe Golf Course where his vehicle crashed, and ran. Officers caught up with him trying to hide in a pond.  Leo Greene, 39, was arrested for investigation of fleeing, resisting arrest, property damage and driving on a revoked license.
