A trainee police officer in Fife, Scotland's car had some sort of probalo with his 'lectric-type system (made by Lucas, perhaps?) that caused his old beater to go up in flames taking 11 other students' cars with it and damaging three others. In the laugh-a-minute, madcap world of Scottish po-po training, some of the other cadets have reportedly taken to calling the poor schlub "Duracell." Waiting...Waiting... No guffaws? What's wrong with you people?
