YOU’VE heard of a high-speed police chase - but how about a low speed one?
A US TV station has broadcast footage of a curious incident in the town of Summerville, South Carolina, where a shopper at a Walmart supermarket apparently tried to abscond with one of the store’s mobility scooters.
It appears the motorised shopping cart was running out of power, as the miscreant attempted to propel it using his feet to escape from a police car as it came alongside at about 5km/h.
Officers were able to detain the man without incident and return the vehicle to the store, with Walmart management declining to press charges.
RESEARCHERS from the London School of Economics have confirmed what many have long suspected - watching some reality TV shows can be bad for your mental health.
A new study found programs such as Keeping Up With The Kardashians and The Appren ce may make viewers less sympathetic to the plight of the poor.
Even as little as 60 seconds of “exposure to materialistic media” was enough to significantly increase anti-welfare sentiment, said lead author Dr Rodolfo Leyva.
He said the research helped explain why the UK public’s support for the unemployed had been decreasing in recent years.
