GLENSHAW, Pa. - A western Pennsylvania police chief is befuddled by someone who foolishly jumped in front of a car while wearing a bear costume during a snow storm.

Shaler Township Chief Bryan Kelly tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that nobody was hurt during the stunt, which occurred about 1:30 a.m. Friday in this suburb about five miles east of Pittsburgh.

Kelly says the bear-suited person jumped in front of the car at an intersection, then ran down an alley. Police showed up to investigate, but couldn't track the suspect.

The area received about four inches of snow overnight, which only made the prank more dangerous.

The chief says he could understand the incident a little better "if it was April. ... I could see it as an April Fool's thing."
