In what can be construed as a new form of “car jacking”, strongman athlete Derek Poundstone demonstrated the proper technique for hoisting a police cruiser a foot off the ground. Poundstone, a Waterbury resident, and a police officer in Naugatuck, performed the awesome feat of strength in Fulton Park in Waterbury for a magazine photo shoot. The Overlook neighborhood has been plagued by a rash of smash and grab robberies, so when Poundstone contacted Waterbury police chief Michael Guggliotti seeking permission to lift a Waterbury cruiser, Guggliotti said sure, but insisted the event take place in the heart of the Overlook community.
