Two Orange County men who entered the home of an FBI agent to steal beer were sentenced to two years in prison. "The men entered the Yorba Linda home Nov. 18 through a partially opened garage door, the Orange County District Attorney's office said," explained the LA Times. "The FBI agent -- identified only as James M. -- entered the garage and identified himself as a law enforcement officer and ordered them to stop. The agent briefly struggled with one of the men before both fled in a car. James M. shot at the car as it drove away but neither man was injured." The two men never ended up with any beer, just cuffs when they were found soon after.
