Jurors in the grand theft trial of Swedish bad boy Bo Stefan Eriksson could not reach a verdict and the judge just declared a mistrial. Prosecutors said they will try again, buoyed by the news that the jury had deadlocked 10-2 in favor of conviction.
Sadly, it's not true that one of the holdouts was a mystery juror with an accent known only as Dietrich. But Malibu locals think they know where Eriksson came up with his story that a German named Dietrich was driving the Enzo Ferrari that crashed at high speed on Pacific Coast Highway in February. The Enzo had just rocketed past the local coffee hangout Diedrich's before wrecking at 160 miles an hour. Eriksson told the sheriff's that the driver ran up into the hills, setting off a big search. This was before "homeland security" got involved. Ah, memories.
