Some weird news out of the US today, as four suspects were arrested after allegedly breaking into a Utah Tesla dealership and stealing some of the inventory.

On Tuesday, 27-year-old Melissa Smith was filling up at a petrol station in Milwaukee when a man jumped into the driver's seat of her car, trying to steal it.

Now, I don't know about you, but I don't have $25,000 to blow on a nine-day luxury rally in my nonexistent supercar. If I did, maybe I'd understand this better: Washington State Patrol stopped more than 10 cars at the Gold Rush Rally in just two counties for going over 160km/h on public roads.

That, of course, is very illegal.
