Woman Gives Thief a Wedgie

I perked up this morning as I lay in bed drowsily watching CNN’s Headline News, when Christi Paul uttered the word “wedgie.”

She introduced a news segment where Yvonne Morris, a technician at the Brickyard Animal Hospital in Salt Lake City, described how she caught a thief she saw stealing an iPod and debit card out of a parked car.

Ms. Morris yelled at the receptionist to call the police, ran outside, stood in front of the car he was driving, confronted the guy and blocked his escape.

According to Ms Morris: “I told him, ‘You're pretty much done, the police are on their way.’ First I grabbed his sweatshirt, and he bent over and wiggled out of it, and as he took off running this way, the only thing I could grab was the back of his pants, and it was his underwear.”

If you’ve ever been the victim of an “Atomic Wedgie,” you KNOW how hard it is to run. The police arrived and arrested 21-year-old Frederick Baze, charging him with burglary, possession of stolen property, and outstanding warrants.

I kid you not. Ahhh, that made my day … better than a cup of coffee!
