YOUR 15 MINUTES: Good Old Survival of the Fittest

A Bloomington, Indiana man allegedly burglarized a home, climbed into a Ford Mustang in the burglarized home's garage and then drove through the garage door, apparently because he couldn't figure out how to open or raise the door. During his great escape, he passed an off-duty Ellettsville police officer in a marked squad car. Fearing officers were pursuing him, he tried to hide in nearby Clear Creek Cemetery. When he approached the cemetery, its large metal gate was locked so he did what he knows best: tried to drive through the locked gate at a high speed. This gate was no garage door and the man was killed instantly at the gate of the cemetery. The county coroner has tentatively identified the man, who had no ID on him. He said the man's fingerprints were sent to the FBI for a positive ID. For now, we'll just call him Stupid McIdiot.
