    Talking Man Shoots His Own Car

    A US man who shot his car when it wouldn't start ended up in jail after shocked neighbours called police.

    John McGivney pulled out a gun and fired five rounds into the bonnet of his Chrysler.

    When asked what he was doing, McGivney, 64, said: "I'm putting my car out of its misery."

    He then calmly tucked his gun in a pocket and went back inside his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

    Police arrested him for discharging the firearm, a .380-caliber semiautomatic, in public.

    After being bailed, McGivney said the car has been giving him trouble for years and had "outlived its usefulness".

    He called the shooting "dumb" but said he didn't regret it.

    "I think every guy in the universe has wanted to do it," he said. "It was worth every damn minute in that jail."

    We had an Officer do that. Just fed up with the poor vehicle performance I guess.

    I remember something like this a couple of years back. I also remember the last major car repair I did. I started having fond thoughts of my sledgehammer and the block...

    What the hell is this world coming to? A man can't shoot his own car now?
