A mentally unbalanced man tried to jump into the popemobile yesterday:
A German man tried to jump into Pope Benedict XVI's uncovered popemobile as the pontiff began his general audience today and held onto it for a few seconds before being wrestled to the ground by security officers.
The pope was not hurt and didn't even appear to notice that the man -- who was between 20 or 30 years old -- had jumped over the protective barrier in the square and had grabbed onto the white popemobile as it drove by. The pontiff kept waving to the crowd and didn't even look back.
