Teen drives car through mall in New York

A teenager drove to a crowded suburban mall on Thursday, smashing through the entrance and cruising past clothing stores before exiting the car to deliver a speech to onlookers, police said.

The 19-year-old man drove through the mall's main glass doors, continued past a JCPenney, passed the mall's central court, knocked over a kiosk and then made two left turns before exiting near a McDonald's, Nassau County police said.

After breaking through the second set of doors at Westfield Sunrise mall, the driver exited the car and started giving a speech before being restrained by a passer-by until police got there, Officer Thomas Brussell said.

No one was seriously hurt by the sedan, although one onlooker suffered minor cuts to the foot after stepping on some of the broken glass. The rampage caused about $60,000 worth of damage, police said. » Article here
