Shoplifter Busted for Stuffing Widescreen TV in Dress

Hemera/Thinkstock(LONDON) -- A 31-year-old woman was arrested in Norway late last week for walking out of an electronics store with a 42-inch TV between her legs.

The Daily Mail
reports the woman and her boyfriend were both arrested as she was observed hobbling to a bus stop after secreting the $3,000 TV under her skirt.

The brazen-but-not-too-bright crime has earned the unidentified suspect the moniker "thunder thighs" by a Norwegian radio station, and has sparked dares of other women attempting the same feat -- though cops say no copycat crimes have been reported.

Amanda Knox Appears in Court for TV Movie Case

TIZIANA FABI/AFP/Getty Images (File Photo)(PERUGIA, Italy) -- Amanda Knox arrived at Perugia's civil court in Italy Monday for the second hearing of her case against producers of the TV movie about the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher; the murder for which she was convicted in 2009.

Her lawyers have demanded that producers of the movie, Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy, starring Hayden Panettiere as Knox, block its distribution in Italy and immediately remove all images and video of it from the Internet.

The producers, Lifetime TV, aired the movie in February in the United States despite opposition from Knox, Raffaele Sollecito -- Knox's Italian ex-boyfriend who was also convicted for the crime -- and Kercher's family.

Monday's half-hour, closed-door hearing was adjourned and no date for the next hearing was set. The judge, Teresa Giardino, said she would have to decide how to notify the producers of the TV movie because no legal representative had shown up for the hearing and she would then announce the next hearing date.

Knox's lawyers said in the first hearing in March that the movie had caused their client "very serious, irreparable damage" and are demanding total damages for more than $4 million. They are also requesting that Google and YouTube, both with legal representatives present Monday, take all clips from the movie off the Internet.

Knox has been in jail in Italy since November 2007 when she and Sollecito were arrested and charged with the killing in Perugia of Knox's British roommate, Kercher. Knox was convicted to 26 years in prison and Sollecito was convicted to 25 years in 2009 for the murder.

They have appealed the convictions and the appeal sentence is expected sometime in the fall.
