Colton Harris-Moore Picked on the Wrong Morning Zoo Host

Don't let the silly grin fool ya. Steal Bob Rivers plane and you will be punished.
Colton Harris-Moore, a.k.a. the Barefoot Burglar, has made a new enemy. Added to the list of burglarized convenience stores and vacation homes goes the name of one Bob Rivers. The KZOK radio host believes Harris-Moore to be the guy responsible for crash-landing his Cessna in Yakama tribal land. And he's not happy about it.

"I was furious that something like this could happen," Rivers said on his show. "It's a burglar with a James Bond complex, and they need to catch him."

As Pete Kotz at our sister blog True Crime Report points out, "since he's a radio host -- perhaps the most irritating species the world has ever known -- is it really a crime to steal his stuff?" That's for the courts to decide.

As for Rivers, he's now declared his own form of vigilante justice the only way a morning zoo host knows how: By dispatching his hapless intern Fat Dan to drive out to Harris-Moore's mother's house, getting him to eat 10-dozen deviled eggs, then having him puke them up on her front lawn, all while live on the air.

Mess with the bull, you get the horns.
