Man Thought He Was Running Over Bin Laden

Associated Press


MONTPELLIER, France - A French artist allegedly traumatized by last week's Spain bombings was convicted of trying to run over a pedestrian he mistook for Osama bin Laden and ordered to pay the man $615.

The 35-year-old defendant, identified as Pierre, was sentenced Tuesday by a court in this southern France city to a three-month suspended prison term. The man he tried to run over was unharmed.

Pierre's lawyer, David Mendel, said his client was the "victim of a hallucination" while driving Monday through Montpellier's historic center.

The victim, a man in his 30s, was able to run from the oncoming car, which crashed along the side of a street.

"If it was (bin Laden), we would have won $5 million," Mendel said, referring to a reward.

The Madrid train bombings, which killed 201 people, increasingly appear to have been orchestrated by Islamic extremists with links to bin Laden's al-Qaida terror network.

Ironically, I almost drove my car off the road from laughing when I heard this on the radio this morning.  Big grin

Scotty, If you would have read the topic, a French man went insane and tried to run over a pedestrian that he thought was Bin Laden.

I think what Scotty meant was where is Bin Laden now. Last I heard Scotty, he is hiding in the mountains near the Pakistan border.

I saw Osama, he rode the Argus cycle tour last weekend in Cape Town, after chatting to the guy for 30 minutes I eventually said to him, you look a lot like Osama Bin Laden, and he said yeah I know, a lot of people tell me that. He was rdiding a trek bike and had a huge beard.
