Breaking news you CAN get elsewhere (07-09-2007 edition)

The weekend is over, but the Chronicle city desk isn't quite back to full speed this morning. Fortunately, the Froot Loops bureau has things covered:

A man was shot after he and an accomplice tried to steal building supplies from the home of State Rep. Boris Miles in southeast Houston on Sunday night, according to televised reports by KTRK (Channel 13)

Authorities gave a reporter this account: The representative was working at his home that is under construction on South MacGregor and Scott about 7:30 when he had a noise in the structure.

Miles, who is licensed to carry a concealed handgun, went to inspect the home when he discovered two men inside.

He opened fire at the suspects, after one of the men allegedly threw a knife at him.

One man was wounded and taken to the hospital. The other was arrested. No charges are expected against Miles.

Way to stay on top of the TV news there, guys!

UPDATE: Two hours after the Froot Loops story first posted, the Chronicle actually has replaced it with a version by reporter Kevin Moran. It's not clear why the Froot Loops versions of these stories continue to appear in the first place. All it does is make the Chron city desk look silly.
