Around The Weird: Bizarre News Briefs

SEATTLE (Wireless Flash) -- Seattle-area police have arrested a man they believe may be the serial food burglar who has gobbled his way through 11 homes since August 3. During the most recent stomach spree, the accused man consumed a box of Creamsicles, six shrimp kabobs, 12 mini corndogs, half a container of lunch meat, two juices, one glass of milk, 12 chunks of cookie dough and several handfuls of M&Ms in a 15-minute period, reports the "Seattle Times."

FUERTH, Germany -- Pretending you're a drug dealer is a really bad way to pick up chicks. That's the lesson one German man learned after faking a crime in hopes that he'd be arrested by a female officer he has a crush on. The 23-year-old phoned police and gave them his own license plate number as the number of a drug dealer's getaway car. He was foiled in his attempt, however: The object of his desire wasn't among the six cars of police who chased him down. Ananova.com reports the man now faces charges of faking a crime and abusing an emergency hotline.

BRUSSELS, Belgium -- A cat which crept into the cockpit of an SN Brussels flight Monday traveling from Brussels to Vienna attacked the co-pilot, forcing the crew to make an emergency landing according to the airline. It was 20 minutes after take-off when the cat escaped from its carrier. A release from the airline said the agitated cat must have ran into the cockpit during meal service, where it scratched the co-pilot's arm.
