From toxic neighbors to dumb criminals to animal criminals to kids surviving jaw dropping situations, "Caught in the Act," an ABC News Special, showcases incredible events all caught on tape. Anchored by Chris Cuomo, "Caught in the Act" airs WEDNESDAY, JUNE 15 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Attempted Murder or Reality TV Show?: A woman who allegedly plotted to kill her husband could never have imagined that it would end up caught on undercover videotape. But, in a crazy twist, when she gets charged with attempted murder, her defense is that it was never a real plot but an attempt to create buzz for a reality TV show. Andrea Canning reports.
Kids in Trouble: Every parent knows that, if they let their guard down for just a moment, their young child could wander away and fall victim to an accident. "Caught in the Act" has dramatic video of babies and toddlers in such trouble � the good news is that, despite all the odds, they escape unharmed. Chris Cuomo reports.
Nasty Neighbors: They say good fences make nasty neighbors. But what about video cameras and the internet? They're playing an increasing role in neighborhood feuds, resulting in bickering and even high drama � all caught on tape. Jim Avila reports on this eye-opening trend.
Dumb Criminals: From robbers who forget to put on their masks to bungling bandits who can't figure out how to open doors, it's all captured on surveillance cameras. As "Caught in the Act" reports, the proliferation of security cameras combined with video sharing sites has led to an unprecedented look at the world of dumb criminals. Chris Cuomo reports.
Animal Thieves: From Dusty the Klepto Kitten, who has stolen approximately 600 items from his neighbors in the middle of the night -- including bras and underwear -- to Kiera, the shoplifting Husky, to Willy, the breaking and entering raccoon, to the booze-bandit monkeys of St. Kitts who steal bar drinks from unsuspecting tourists, it's clear that not all "criminals" are human. "Caught in the Act" introduces viewers to some of the animals bound by having their mischievous acts caught on tape. John Berman reports.
