Fast Food, Fast Thinking
On a lighter note and also involving fast food, two suspects in Stockton, California failed to make their getaway after robbing a local Burger King® restaurant at gunpoint when a savvy employee sneaked out the back door, noticed the suspects’ getaway car running, hopped in, drove it around the corner, and hid it. Upon realizing they had no getaway car, the two suspects panicked and fled to a nearby field, where they were quickly arrested. The arresting officers, meanwhile, advise you not to try this yourself.
