Almost a Darwin Award
- One juvenile is hospitalized, reportedly with a broken neck, after he tried to escape police and jumped from the roof of a building he was "“tagging"” with two other juveniles who were in police custody early Wednesday on the Near South Side.
- The juveniles were scrawling graffiti symbols atop a tire remanufacturing company near the railroad tracks at Cermak and Western about 3 a.m. when one of them jumped from the building to avoid police capture, said Ogden District Lt. Sam Cozzo.
- "One of them got real stupid [and jumped]," Cozzo said.
Well said boss. Now, any bets on how soon until mommy and daddy sue the police for their delinquent child? We give it 30 days.
