It's only January (for another 15 minutes) but I'm fairly confident nobody's going to top this one. Taken from Twitter.
I hate 'em as much as everybody else, but: Carjacking in Chino Hills turns into a car chase. South on the 71, U-turn where the divider ends, off at Euclid. they stop and do a Chinese fire drill, get back in and continue northbound, crash the car and jump over a fence. THE FENCE IS AROUND CHINO STATE PRISON. End of story. Newscopter guy be like WTF???
Ya can't make this **** up.
Don't look at me, I just work here.
