Police have bone to pick with motorist using fake skeleton as a passenger
A motorist who plonked a fake skeleton in his passenger seat so he could use a high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane has been fined. Police in Arizona stopped the 62-year-old man after spotting the odd-looking companion in his front seat.The plastic skeleton - complete with a spooky outfit and a camouflage bucket hat - had a cool box between its legs and was secured to the seat with yellow rope.Alas, officers saw right through the driver's stunt.
A pursuit that passed through several Winnipeg neighbourhoods ended in the arrest of two people and the seizure of a sawed-off shotgun, stolen cheques and stolen ID.
Officers attempted to stop a vehicle they considered suspicious around 1:15 a.m. Monday near the intersection of Sherbrook Street and Logan Avenue, in the city's Centennial neighbourhood.
The vehicle immediately sped off, running a red light at Logan and Arlington Street.
