The suspect managed to break free and began running toward nearby woods, shedding clothing in the meantime.

Do criminals really believe that 'get nekkid' is the best way to avoid arrest?

FTA: Police assisted in transporting the shooting victim also to Christ.

Only in the USA can you be killed and sent to heaven by cops for being a victim.

I'm not familiar with this transporting-shooting-victims-to-Christ euphamism, but I kinda like it.

"the suspect threatened the officer by saying, "I know where you live now and I'll come back and kill you." The suspect also threatened to injure the officer's wife."
Not the brightest thing to say to a Southside cop...

As police were making the arrest at 1:13 a.m., a drunken motorist driving a 2004 Ford Escape came upon the crime scene and plowed into a police squad car.

for some reason that made me laugh, maybe the use of the word "plowed"

So, Subby, this "then 'things got weird' is an understatement" you speak of, is this how all weird news headlines will read from now on? I might say that the "then things got weird" bit has grown rather old.

In other news, after reading TFA, I must say I was underwhelmed. I thought this sort of thing happens all the time in Chicago? All that was missing was the transvestite prostitute riding shotgun to a guy in a bunny suit stopping for directions before getting hit with a car by a guy in his underwear driving with a bag over his head.

\Obscure?
\\Of course, my horse.

I bet his wife was pissed for bringing work home with him.

I am more upset about the horrible journalism. Too shiatty of writing to even follow this crap called reporting.

It's BRILLIANT. Think about it. The police would be looking for a CLOTHED criminal. So when they see the guy a hour later, they'll be like, "That can't be him, sarge; dispatch said we were looking for a guy with jeans and a hat. That guy is clearly naked, so he's not the murderer."

Paul Daniels, 26, of South Holland, was subsequently cited with two counts of driving under the influence and two counts of damage to public property. He was also cited with failure to reduce speed, no driver's license, no insurance and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.

8 offenses. Dude is hardcore.

Its not the 'stupid' its the graft and corruption.
But it actually works well and everybodys palm is moist.

20 people were shot in 12 hours Saturday late afternoon until early Sunday morning. I wake up every single Sunday morning and see a headline with a similar number of shootings.

The number of shootings always reaches double digits, but only on those special weekends do the number of deaths make it to double digits. My favorite part is at the ends of these death-aggregating stories every Sunday morning, there is usually a line in there that says "no arrests have been made."

Mostly gang members killing each other. Maybe the problem will solve itself.

Well duh! He was driving the car he was driving...and he drove the first patrol car into the second. That's two counts. Twice.

Wow, Chicago police have proved the existence of God.

And it's only coincidence that Fartbama was in town this weekend.

Actually sounds pretty run normal for Chicago.

/never understood the 'Fartbama' usage. Is there supposed to be something clever about changing the first letter of someone's name to 'fart'? Or is it another 13 yr old male (at least mentally) thing? Should we be using Fartush when referring to Bush? At least that has the advantage that it combines the word 'fart' with the word 'tush', which are at least related.
//sorry for the thread jack.

The name of the hospital is, 'Christ Community Hospital' aka 'Christ' on the street. Pretty good place but Christ can't heal amputees there either.

Yeah, now I'm wondering how many times this guy tripped and hit his face on the pavement while they were bringing him in.

1) Reduce drag
2) Officers reluctant to grab you
3) It's FUN!
