Jenson Button, former F1 World Champion and possible host for UK TV show Top Gear, was robbed at a rented Southern France vacation home in Saint-Tropez with wife Jessica Michibata. The burglars, perhaps staking out the home for the entire duration of their stay, pumped anaesthetic gas into the air conditioning system, rendering the couple and three friends unconscious while the intruders entered and robbed.
