This gentleman is Steven Frank Steele, 19, of Ipswich, Queensland, Australia, who was arrested for attempting to rob a gas station while wearing a flower pot on his head and wielding a chainsaw. He allegedly demanded money but escaped with only a bottle of soda, but not before mooning the clerks. (Queensland Times)
