Greetings fellow Bizarros:
It's not an easy thing to run yourself over with your own vehicle, but one Florida man figured out how to do it, and not surprisingly, it involved a large amount of alcohol (alleged, but who are we kidding).
The Florida Highway Patrol released surveillance footage showing William Edwards, 28, leaving the Dancer's Royale strip club in Orlando about 2:15 a.m. and getting into his Ford pickup truck.
Club security said they tried to stop Edwards, a regular at the club, from driving because he had been drinking heavily.
The footage shows Edwards start to drive away with the door of the pickup ajar, but he quickly falls out the door and the truck runs over his leg.
The FHP said Edwards, apparently uninjured, ran away from the scene as the pickup truck rolled down the street, hit a ditch and rammed into a nearby home.
Adrean Larrea said his mother was sleeping in the home when the truck crashed into her room. She suffered minor injuries but did not require medical attention.
"If that ditch wasn't there, my mom would be in a funeral right now, underground," Larrea told local news. "They had to break the window to get in to turn off the car because the car was smoking."
Investigators said they contacted Edwards, who left his driver's license at the club, and he turned himself in. He is facing a charge of leaving the scene of a crash.

*--- Man Picked the Right Beer to Urinate On ---*
A man was arrested on a charge of criminal mischief after allegedly urinating on cases of beer at a 7-Eleven convenience store, according to police in Florida. Treasure Island police said that they have arrested 46-year-old Daniel Colon, after being accused of ruining at least 6 cases of beer inside the store's cooler. According to the criminal complaint, Colon entered the 7-Eleven looking for a bathroom. Colon opened a door to the cooler after he couldn't find the toilet. He unzipped his pants and began to urinate. A store employee followed Colon into the cooler and confronted him. Colon then left the store. Colon urinated on 6 cases of Busch Light, causing $100 in damage. He was later pulled over by police for driving drunk.
*------------ How's Thats For Luck? ------------*
The AFP reports a man inherited a house in France from a deceased relative only to discover $3.7 million worth of hidden gold. "It was under the furniture, under piles of linen, in the bathroom ... everywhere," an auctioneer says. It started when the unnamed-yet-very-lucky man started moving furniture and found a box of gold coins attached to the bottom of one piece. He continued poking around and soon found an old whisky box with more gold pieces hidden inside. By the time the treasure hunt ended, he had found 5,000 gold pieces, two gold bars, and 37 gold ingots. The entire haul weighed more than 200 pounds and was reportedly bought during the 1950s and 1960s. Meanwhile I can't even win on a stupid, $2 instant lottery ticket. How's that for luck?
