Posted on 05/12/2013 12:18:43 PM PDT by Impala64ssa
Weve all seen Gone in 60 Seconds. The remake film from 2000 features an all-star cast and an elusive Mustang that always gets Nicolas Cages character in trouble. Its a unicorn car no matter how hard he tries to steal it, something always goes wrong.
Joshua Nadelhoffer, 29, is not a professional car thief. If he was, he wouldnt have been foolish enough to (allegedly) try to steal a 2013 Camaro SS from a Hertz Rent-A-Car parking lot at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Not only that, but he surely would have had the foresight to know that leaving out of the entrance would have resulted in flat tires thanks to the spike strip mounted across the driveway designed to keep would-be car thieves from doing exactly what Nadelhoffer did.

Breaking: Metal Spikes Smarter than Would-be Car Thief!
Too bad he didn’t manage to kill (or at least neuter) himself somehow in the attempt; he’d have been in the running for the Darwin.
Nadlehoffer responded by crashing through the gate, driving over the spikes, and hopped on the I-95 with three flat tires only to get caught by the police 3 hours and 15 miles down the highway with four flat tires.Obviously it must have been a foot pursuit.
Apparently, hes quite a regular in the area jailhouses with priors of assault, DUI, and other legal no-nos, racking up no fewer than five arrests since February.Holy habitual offenders, Batman, ya think after arrest #3 the judge might have denied bail? That's almost one arrest per fortnight. The judge could call him by name.
Overheard at the courthouse: Sheeit man, do you know how hard I worked to get a long stretch of county time? I mean it really sucks out there. Finally I had to sit there on the interstate for almost three freaking hours until dick freaking tracy got his thumb out and pulled up behind me!
Looks like he smarted off to the arresting officers and took a punch in the kisser.
