Take this trolley to Cuba!
Man Allegedly Hijacks Tourist Trolley:
SAN DIEGO -- A man boarded a tourist trolley at a tollbooth, held a gun to the driver's head and led police on a freeway chase Sunday before he was caught, authorities said.

Police stopped the trolley, which had no passengers on board, after an hour-and-a-half by throwing spike strips in front of it. A police dog bit the suspect and police arrested him for investigation of carjacking, assault and kidnapping, said Coronado Police Sgt. Jeff Hutchins.
No word on whether products of fermentation or illicit substances were involved.
