What are the chances?
July 11, 2020
Greetings fellow Bizarros:
What are the chances? You've stolen a car and you're feeling pretty good about yourself. You made a clean get away and you're cruising down the street looking forward to enjoying your ill-gotten gains when *CRASH* you get run into by another car. Another car that just so happens to be chased by police. Chased by the police for being stolen.
Police in Newburg, Oregon said officers responded to a report that someone had just stolen a Toyota Land Cruiser. The officers spotted it moments later, and the driver tried to elude police.
But the driver, identified by police as Randy Lee Cooper, crashed into an occupied Buick Regal and was taken into custody.
Officers then learned the Buick had also been stolen in an unrelated incident reported about three weeks earlier, police said.
The Buick driver, 25-year-old Newberg resident Kristin Nicole Begue, was also arrested. She's accused of driving under the influence of intoxicants and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, police said.
Cooper, a 27-year-old Portland resident, is accused of crimes including unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, attempting to elude police, assault and reckless driving, according to police.

Hot air balloon makes emergency landing
A hot air balloon caused a scene in an Illinois town when it made an emergency landing in the middle of a residential neighborhood. Residents of Lake in the Hills, a far northwest suburb of Chicago, said it is not unusual to see hot air balloons in the sky, but they were shocked when one landed in the middle of a neighborhood. "We looked out our window and here comes the hot air balloon, like right between the homes here. And then they were waving at us and we're waving, like, 'We don't know, this is awfully close," a homeowner whose security camera recorded the landing said. Bob Perkins, who is chief of the ground crew that tracks the balloon, said the emergency landing was conducted after a passenger fainted during the flight. Firefighters said the woman regained consciousness before the landing and was examined by paramedics once the balloon touched down. She declined to be transported to a hospital as a precaution.

Man attacked by deadly snake while driving
F'ing Australia. Police in Queensland said a driver pulled over for speeding on the highway gave officers a good excuse -- he was fighting off one of the world's deadliest snakes. The Police Service said the driver, identified only as Jimmy, 27, was pulled over on the Dawson Highway when an officer clocked him going 76 mph in a 62 mph zone. Jimmy told the officer he had been driving on the highway when he suddenly spotted an eastern brown snake, one of the most venomous species in the world, slithering by his legs. "It just started to wrap around me. Its head just started striking at the [driver's seat] chair, between my legs," Jimmy told police. He told the officer he used a knife to kill the snake, which he was able to show the officer. Jimmy feared he had been bitten by the snake, but paramedics determined the serpent had not successfully broken his skin. The driver was treated for shock.
