A Funny Story from the News


STUART, Fla. (Reuters)

Deputies were chasing a group of teen-agers suspected of stealing cars early on Monday. When they blocked the fleeing vehicles' path, the suspects jumped out, fled on foot and dived into the pond, a sheriff's report said.

Deputies persuaded the teens to surrender by shining their flashlights into the water, illuminating the red eyes of several nearby alligators.
