• WILMAAAAAAAA!!! Admitting that he knew the brakes on his truck were not working, a 24-year-old Detroit-area man nevertheless took it out for a drive. When it came time to slow the vehicle down, the man stuck his feet out the door and attempted to stop the car with his feet. It didn’t work. He could not stop at an intersection and struck two vehicles, then two more at the next one. The man finally was able to stop the truck after an officer caught up with him and told him to put it in park. What a woodhead. [msnbc]
