Osama was in a shop when he saw a thief climb into his Renault Clio and start to drive away. Osama jumped onto the roof and held on. The thief took the car onto the autoroute and quickly accelerated to 130. Osama managed to call the police while still holding on to the roof. The thief was swerving to try to throw him off.

The police joined the high speed drama – one officer pulled his gun, but didn’t fire.

Osama managed to jump to safety when the car slowed on exiting the autoroute. The thief was arrested.
