Teen Outruns German Police In Go-Kart

German police are saying it was their cars, not their driving skills, that allowed an 18-year-old to outrun them in a go-kart. The teenie-bopper driver led seven squad cars on a 3-mile chase through the city of Moenchengladbach before he lost the fuzz by ducking into an open garage. A spokesman for the department said the kart's superior cornering abilities allowed the driver to get away. However, even superior driving skills are no match for basic common sense as officers later caught up with the suspect while he was still hiding in the same garage. He's been charged with driving without a license and driving a go-kart on a public street, which is against the law in Germany. Apparently running away from police is not an illegal activity in Deutschland. Who knew? [Reuters]
