According to The West Australian, a man being chased by police in Perth, drove a stolen four-wheel drive into the ocean as he tried to get away.
Police in four-wheel drives had been following the man for nearly two hours as he drove through sand dunes. In one last crazed move, the car thief drove into the Indian Ocean. The car was immediately swamped by waves and the man escaped his vehicle. Two officers battled heavy waves to grab the man and pull him from the surf.
Police said that the driver initially caught their attention by driving erratically, as if the thief was possibly drunk. And that explains a lot!
