In the spirit of them Duke boys, a renegade in Ronkonkoma, NY made off with a 1969 Dodge Charger General Lee replica (complete with Confederate battle flag and everything). The car was reported stolen at about 10:00 pm yesterday and was found abandoned at around 7:00 am the next day. We have a couple of theories about what happened. Either the person stole the car expecting to go for a big of a joy ride and then dump the General before getting popped, or they realized that even Rosco P. Coltrane could find a bright orange Charger in Ronkonkoma and quickly abandoned the vehicle. Either way, looks like these good ole' boys have gotten away so far. [Newsday]
