I couldn't make this up if I tried...Thousands run in undies in Utah

Thousands of runners may have broken a Guinness World Record for most people running in their underwear in Utah.

About 3,000 people showed up Saturday night to run from the Gallivan Center in Salt Lake City -- some for fun, others to try to send a message, KSTU-TV, Salt Lake City, reported.

"This is all about peace, love and supporting equal rights for LDS [Mormons], non-LDS, gay, straight, doesn't matter," runner Lisa Jackman said.

Some say the message may have been lost in the sea of panties and boxers.

"I see a lot of political messages maybe, but honestly I'm just here to have a lot of fun," runner Kevin Norton said. "I don't look at this stuff, I don't pay attention to it."

Burglar found cooking inside restaurant

Police arrested a Mount Prospect, Ill., man who allegedly broke into a restaurant and made himself a meal.

Video surveillance of Mr. Beef and Pizza in Mount Prospect allegedly shows Hachem Gomez, 19, entering the restaurant early Saturday by breaking into the drive-through window, the Arlington Heights (Ill.) Daily Herald reported.

Assistant State's Attorney Robin Murphy said the video also shows Gomez damaging a cash register before stealing fries and chicken tenders from a freezer and cooking them in a microwave.

There was no indication that Gomez was drunk or under the influence of drugs at the time of the burglary and the man has no criminal background, Murphy said.

Gomez's bond was set at $5,000 and he is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 21.
