Idiot Thief Tries To Escape Police By Covering Himself In Coconut Oil
This has to be one of the weirdest escape plans I've ever heard of in my life.
Steven Beeton, 30, from Swindon, Wiltshire, tried to avoid being apprehended by police by slathering himself in coconut oil.
Now, I know that coconut oil is apparently the stuff of gods. You've got shit hair? Put some coconut oil on it. Bad skin? Coconut oil. Need to get away from the police? Urm...
Maybe this guy has been watching too many cartoons. The thing is, the actual story is anything but funny.
Swindon Magistrates' Court heard that Beeton came back home highly intoxicated after drinking heavily. He then proceeded to threaten his girlfriend which, in turn, made her flee from the scene and call the police.

When they arrived at the address, he had bizarrely covered himself with the oil. So yeah, no-one really know why he thought this would help, including himself.
He admitted to stealing money as well as assault by beating during the trial.
Defence lawyer, Mark Glendenning, said: "He has very little recollection of what happened when he returned to the flat in the early hours of the morning."
Sentencing will take place on July 6. In the meantime, he has been banned from contacting his girlfriend.
