If the makers of the "Grand Theft Auto" game are looking for content . . . THIS is something that they could consider writing code for.

A man in Rhode Island named Charles Kendrick was up at 2:00 A.M. last Wednesday playing "Grand Theft Auto". Oh, and he wasn’t clothed at the time.

He heard a grinding sound outside, like something was being cut. So he went out to investigate, and that's when he saw someone under his car . . . stealing his catalytic converter.

Charles confronted the thief, and they fought. The thief eventually got away . . . WITH the catalytic converter . . . but Charles got the guy's phone, and has since given it to police. As far as we know, the thief hasn't been caught.

Charles said, "I don't think he was expecting to get caught . . . and he definitely wasn't expecting to get caught by somebody naked."
