I couldn't make this up if I tried. . .Mother runs down burglary suspect on foot

A mother of three told a would-be burglar outside her parent's Florida home to "run fast" before chasing him down on foot to be arrested by police.

Betsy Stibler, 41, was checking on her children when she spotted the burglar going through her father's car around 2 a.m. Thursday, Naples (Fla.) Daily News reported.

Stibler said she called 911, then confronted the suspect.

"I said, 'You may as well stop. The police are coming. And if you are going to run, you better run fast and more than three miles because I'm a runner,'" Stibler said.

The suspect, identified as Roy Wayne Hansen, 21, took off, the newspaper said.

Stibler, who has run six 5K races in the past year, caught up to Hansen and cornered him between two homes and waited for Collier County sheriff's deputies …

I couldn't make this up if I tried...School speed sign lists six time periods
Motorists in a Michigan town are complaining about a school speed limit sign that requires drivers to read six different time periods for the speed change.

Greg Smith said the sign, which was installed near his home in White Lake Jan. 12, lists six different times that motorists need to slow down from 45 mph to 25 mph on a mile-long stretch of Bogie Lake Road near three schools, The Oakland Press, Pontiac, reported Thursday.

"You practically have to come to a stop to read it," Smith said. "I'm thinking of printing out the speeds and attaching it to my dashboard."

White Lake Police Chief Ed Harris said he will be meeting with the White Lake supervisor and officials from the Huron Valley School District and the Road Commission of Oakland County to discuss the sign.

"We are aware of it …

I couldn't make this up if I tried. . .Man says transvestite escort cheated him
A Florida man says a young escort he hired off Craigslist cheated him in two ways: He was a transvestite and he took advantage of his host's generosity.

The 69-year-old Palm Coast resident said he let the young man stay at his house because he felt sorry for him, The Daytona Beach (Fla.) News-Journal reported. The older man acknowledged they were also having sex.

The escort allegedly then blackmailed him, saying he was only 16 and would report his host for rape. The escort eventually left after the older man purchased a car for him.

The older man eventually decided to file a report with the Flagler County Sheriff's Office. He told the newspaper he now believes the escort is older than he looks.

The man said he goes on a drinking binge about once a year and then turns to Craigslist for female compani…

I couldn't make this up if I tried. . .Family gets $10K Internet bill for watching movies
A Canadian family said they unknowingly racked up a $10,000 bill while using their mobile Internet to watch movies on Netflix while on vacation.

John Gibson of Weyburn, Saskatchewan, said he recently took his family on vacation to Phoenix, where his grandchildren used his SaskTel mobile Internet to watch Netflix movies on a laptop computer, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Friday.

Gibson said he was shocked when his SaskTel bill arrived and the amount exceeded $10,000. He said he was told the charges resulted from heavy data usage outside of the company's service area, causing roaming charges to accumulate.

Gibson said he spoke to the company and they agreed to reduce the bill to $1,000. He said the experience was a pricy lesson.

"It's sort of my fault," he said. &…
