Today's tip for drunken crime sprees: You can't keep the police at bay by threatening to shoot yourself if you don't have a gun.

That was the end game for Robert Lee Baker of Anderson, CA, after police descended on a neighborhood here in Redding on Sunday. Police said the 18-year-old crashed a stolen car into a minivan and a light pole, then fled on foot. When police located him, he was lying in a residential street, threatening to shoot himself.

Police said he failed a field sobriety test (surprise!) and was arrested on numerous charges.
