Cops Find Idiot Fugitive Hiding In Stack Of Teddy Bears

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Teddy bears, even a stack of them, weren`t adequate cover for a fugitive. Police said a 20-year-old man found that out after he led them on a vehicle chase, then tried to hit an officer with his car.

Caro ditched his car near a traveling carnival ...

They tracked him to a game booth with an array of teddy bears for prizes."

Wearing your seat belt may not only save your life, but it will also save you a lot of aggravation. Caro first caught the attention of the cops, because he wasn`t wearing a seat belt.

At one point in this farcical incident the suspect tried to run over a police offer, he was charged with aggravates assualt against a public servant and evading arrest.

A pile of teddy bears is a good hiding place, but Caro forgot to assume the fetal position. A cop saw the idiot`s sneakers sticking out from under the stuffed animals.

The moral of this story is clear: Always wear your seat belt, and never speed away when a cop pulls you over.
