Just Chill II

A man in Kristiansand, Norway, woke up to the sound of his car engine starting. He raced out and saw his car being stolen, so he grabbed a door handle and held on. The thief tried to shake the man off, but the owner climbed onto the roof and held on as the car sped off. With the thief driving at speeds up to 90 kph (56 mph), the man smashed in the back window with his knee and grappled with the thief until the car crashed into a bridge’s safety barrier. The police took the thief into custody and the victim — wearing nothing but his underwear with an outside temperature of –17C (1.4F) — was left “pretty bloody,” according to police. “Bruce Willis wouldn’t have managed that,” police chief Jan Nesland said. “It’s not something we would advise people to do, but now that he’s done it — well, it’s an incredible story.” (MS/BBC) ...Sure enough, they’re offering the lead in the film version to Bruce Willis.
