TODAY'S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
    Two female car thieves, who stole a car in Norway and drove across the border into Sweden before one of them noticed the drunken owner of the car asleep in the back seat. They pulled over, unloaded the man and drove away. When he realized what was going on, he called the cops. As luck would have it, the next day, as police were taking the car's owner to the train station to return home, they saw the man's car and the female car thieves. The police pulled them over and arrested them. A short time later the man was given his car keys and he was able to drive himself back home.

AND THEN THERE'S .....
    Donald Munoz, 32, who polished off a couple Mike's Hard Lemonades and then hopped on his bicycle to drive home, but drove into a police cruiser instead. A dash cam video shows the drunken cyclist tearing through an intersection and colliding with the patrol car. Munoz admitted to drinking the alcohol and even had another open container of the beverage on his person at the time of the collision.

OR HOW 'BOUT .....
    Four St. Paul, Minnesota, filmmakers, who staged a car crash and gunfight but forgot one very important thing ... to notify the police first. David Otto Simanek, 47, Geoffrey Ross Brown, 32, Destiny Christina Soria, 27, and Timothy Terrell Christian, 31, didn't have a permit and didn't notify police or residents of the 11 a.m. movie shoot, which apparently involved staging an accident between two cars followed by a gunfight. Police arrived on scene, drew their own weapons and ordered the individuals to get on the ground. It was only then that police learned the people weren't shooting each other ... they were shooting a movie.

OKAY, ONE MORE .....
    An unidentified man, who was seeking a job at a local Arizona feed store, but blew his chances when he stole a donation box on his way out the door. After filling out his application, he saw one of the employees leave the counter area, so he grabbed the donation box and put it into his black shoulder bag. When deputies arrived, the store clerk played a security video showing the potential employee stealing the donation box. The clerk also provided police with the man's completed job application, which included the suspect's name and address.
