    Cop scares off car thief... by being naked.

    Naked cop proves arresting sight for Kiwi car thief

    Mon Mar 31, 11:07 PM ET

    WELLINGTON (Reuters) - A policeman in a small New Zealand town did not let the fact that he was naked hold him back from chasing a thief trying to steal his car.
    The off-duty constable was asleep at his home in Balclutha, in the lower South Island, when his wife woke him in the early hours, the New Zealand Press Association reported.
    When the policeman realized the sound his wife heard was someone attempting to start the couple's car, he didn't let the fact he was stark naked hold him back, bursting out the door with nothing more than a torch.
    The offender bolted with the officer in hot pursuit, NZPA reported, but was soon after picked up by a police patrol.
    "The offender...startled by the sight of a naked constable with just a torch coming towards him, took off," local police were quoted as saying.

    The views, opinions, stupid off the cuff comments, mouthy, obnoxious, thoughtless, etc etc etc are not always or even some of the time the belief of my department, so bugger off!

    I'm with you on this one. A naked man toting a burning stick comes after me and I am out like a slow kid in dodgeball.

    I'm guessing a "torch" is what they call a flashlight.

    But it's funnier to think of it as the kind of thing one would use to chase the Frankenstein monster away.
