Police get testy if you try to run over them with a hearse

A man is in the hospital after attempting to steal a hearse parked outside of a funeral in West Park.

Authorities say a hearse with the engine running was parked outside Gethsemane Missionary Baptist Church located in the 5200 block of Pembroke Road. A man walking by jumped into the car and fled.

BSO deputies quickly issued a be on the lookout alert, and the hearse was immediately located.

After a brief chase, the man was shot after almost running down a deputy.

Santa Claus has added a New York City traffic agent to his naughty list after she gave him a ticket while [he was] delivering gifts to children. Chip Cafiero says he’ll fight the $115 ticket he received in Brooklyn on Black Friday when he was dressed as Santa.

The 60-year-old retired schoolteacher was riding a horse-drawn carriage and handing out toys and candy canes. An SUV carrying the toys and protecting the horse from traffic was double parked next to him.

Santa says he yelled “Ho! Ho! Ho!” to get the traffic agent’s attention because the SUV wasn’t blocking traffic. But in his words, “This grinch just went ahead and fined me.”

Local politician Martin Golden calls the parking ticket “ridiculous.”

Police won’t comment on it.
