arrest goes down. it's a world-famous offroad race. but when one team takes a nose-dive. >> you can see it's not about just getting out of the car. it's about getting out of the car quickly. >> see the frantic race to escape as gas comes pouring in. >> get out! get out! >> he's the prankster known for messing with strangers. but this time -- >> andrew tries to turn around and say, this is just a joke. >> but the dude ain't having it see how this prank becomes stranger danger. for some reason, wearing one of those horse masks and doing all sorts of wacky stuff has kind of become a thing. we even have one here at the office, one of our editors, production guys, greg likes to wear his horse mask. >> terrifying. >> that is what kevin hennessy was doing in portland, oregon, he had a tripod. but watch what happens.
>> okay. that's the police, telling kevin to put your stuff down. >> that's a camera tripod? >> yes. >> a crossbow. >> >> a apparently people were calling the police saying there's a guy in a horse mask running around with a crossbow. >> do you have i.d. on you? >> yes. >> kevin was i.d., he wasn't confrontational, but he has a lengthy conversation with the police. they kind of say look, people are pretty sensitive right now about weapons in public. you do have a mask on, which makes it seem a little sketchy. >> you could lk go to jail for something like that. >> what? >> for having a horse mask. >> you start freaking out enough people that they start calling 911 and hillsborough county cops start descending on you with lights and sirens and stuff? >> but it's not a weapon. and wearing a mask on a public sidewalk is perfectly legal. >> it gets a little confusing, because the police do say this. >> it's actually legal in this
state to walk down the street with a gun strabed to your hip. >> yeah. >> you're probably going to get talked to. >> of course. >> combine it with a mask and people start thinking armed robbery. >> we've got kevin with us via skype talking about this incident. at the end of this you walked away, right? >> no ticket, nothing, just have a nice day. >> are you upset with how this went down? >> i understand they're the police and people are paranoid. but i thought his overreaction was a little too much. i can't see myself going to jail for fear. that's what he seemed like he was telling me. enough people call, we could put you in jail because people are scared. >> are you going to hit the streets with your mask and tr i tripod again? >> of course, i make goofy videos. >> do you think it's a sign of the times we're in right now? >> i think it is. i was in portland, oregon, one of our mottos is, keep portland weird. i thought it was one more thing to add into portland's
krasiness. >> i grab might shotgun and i had been thinking about this moment for a long time. >> the moment he was thinking about was confronting the man that had robbed his san antonio, texas home two times. the man holding the shotgun is paul. his girlfriend, heidi, had just come home from a company party. >> she said she had seen this guy. >> grabbed my boyfriend and said, he's here. >> what they saw was the man suspected of burglarizing homes in their neighborhood, carrying a tv belonging to someone else. so paul's surveillance camera picked up the confrontation. >> whoa. >> in broad daylight. >> it was like he was walking right there where paul could see him, like walking across his lawn. >> was this tv from paul's house? or somebody in the neighborhood? >> it was somebody in the neighborhood. he couldn't have gone too far, because it was a big tv you can't walk too far with. >> he comes out john wayne style. shotgun right down the nose of
the guy. what happens next? >> he was very compliant. >> smartly so. >> yeah, uh-huh. >> this is like the best citizens' arrest i have ever seen. >> i hoped i wouldn't have to. but i like the fact that you know, if it, if it does happen again, you know, we'll be prepared. > >> one of the most demanding races in the world is the dakar rally. this year it is going through the countries of peru, argentina and chile. one of the stars of the race is robbie gordon. here you see him driving his bright orange hummer, speeding through the wide-open desert. oh! >> but he quickly turns his hum near a lawn dart in the middle of the desert. check out the in-car camera. all the stuff that was on the floor is now on the roof. >> but is that gas? >> fuel leaking everywhere. >> can you see it's not just about getting out of the car, it's about getting out of the car quickly. >> get out, get out!
>> robbie says at first, he can't get the driver's door open. so he has to scoot out through the passenger window. and get away from the car. luckily, the car did not catch fire. and luckily they weren't seriously hurt. but this is damaging. >> if this scene looks a little bit familiar to race fans out there, that's because if you check the internet, robbie did pretty much the exact same thing last year. that's why the accident is so frustrating. >> same exact situation, almost open desert comes up over a dune, carries too much speed, the back end goes up and he winds up rolling over right this group of speck daters. these guys prepare for this race the entire year. even though the car was righted, it pretty much puts a "you're done" stamp on this race. >> i'll be honest, i thought we were going to win this year. frustrating, no words can
explain it. >> this is a scary video. this is a video from a parking garage where at least one of these women lives, he hits this woman, pulls her to the ground, picks up her purse and takes off running while the other two unsuccessfully chase after him. this video is from back in october. but police released it because there are at least five other victims. they believe he is responsible for attacking. police have also released this sketch of the suspect. >> this is tough, because i mean what are these women supposed to do. he sneaks up on them. >> they are together, not by themselves. >> comes up so fast. >> what can you do. >> the one tallest girl, she even came at him with her purse. it was like she was trying to fight him off. >> wsb tv talked to one of the victims. >> i looked over my shoulder and saw this guy stepping out of the shadows with his arm cocked back and a brick in i>> isnother vid what police believe is the same man attacking another woman. you can see him hitting her on
the head and kicking her. he falls, she tries chasing after him, unsuccessfully. >> there's a third video where you see him waiting for his victims to come. police are worried, they believe he could do this again or worse. tired of the hassles with the bike locks? here's a new idea -- >> that's brilliant. that's a great idea. it's so simple and elegant and clean. >> see it and see what you think, next. >> the old shell game. can the cat guess right? >> okay, here we go. >> see how well he plays along on "right this minute."

byu's campus and people weren't chasing him. his shtick is getting old, people know who he is and what he's up to. so he has to take his act up north. different part of town. here he is, trying to pull the same move on the guy in the brown jacket and vest. >> what kind of fun is this? >> andrew takes off. >> this dude drops his bag. >> oh! >> no kidding, dude. >> that's not cool. i would beat the crap out of you like that. >> i've been waiting for this to happen to andrew hale. it seems like it's going to happen every time he pulls one of his pranks. >> we're doing a prank, dude. >> that's so perfect, dude. >> oh, my gosh. >> that was amazing, dude new york city one has ever done that before. >> they showed it to him and they go on to explain, you're the first person who has ever had this kind of reaction. the guy thinks it's funny. >> he still gets lucky. this guy finds it funny.

>> it's brilliant, great idea, simple, elegant, clean. >> like -- >> a retractable cord on a vacuum. >> but putting the cable through the frame, it insures the bike is secure even if someone tries to remove the seat. >> it seems like it would be easy to cut through. >> can you use it with a u-lock if you want to be extra careful and lock up the front tire as well. this is a brand-new product idea. so of course it's a kick-starter project. >> we need $48,000 to cover the cost of tools and materials to make it happen. >> if you donate $39 by may of 2013. you'll get an interlock lock for your bike. once they hit the market they'll be $50. it saves you $11. >> if you think it's a cool project, please, back the project. i'm about to show you one amazing cat. one thing you should know about him, he was twice abandoned by the age of six months old, but the people who own him now have realized this is one special
cat. kiddo can play a shell game. watch. >> let's guess ourselves. >> i was going to say far left. >> i'll go with the middle. >> the question is, does he get it. >> it was the middle. >> he was so nonchalant about it. he's like, please. typical cat behavior, they're bored with everyone and everything. he does it again. >> middle. >> i think it's the middle. >> here we go. >> middle. >> that begs the question -- is he only picking the middle one. >> the owner ups the ante by putting four cups down instead of three. >> i lost it, too. >> i have no clue. >> nik? >>ne of the left, i think. >> let's see. >> whoa! >> this is impressive.
