Don't Try This at Home

1:45 PM -- Mini Coopers corner pretty well. But stairs? Not so much. The Telegraph reports on a student's bold, but lame, attempt to recreate a scene from The Italian Job:

    The Bristol University student, a former Harrow schoolboy, spent a night in jail after he drove his new £10,000 Mini up a flight of steps.

    But the prank backfired after he crashed the car, which was given to him the day before by his parents, causing the radiator to blow up, the two front tyres to burst and both airbags to explode.
A fellow student had the best last word: "What a prat."
