Dude, Where's My Car?
- A Chicago man, whose car was stolen at gunpoint, was himself arrested after making up a story to police.
- The man told officers that his two children were inside the car when two armed men stole it early Monday morning near the intersection of 66th Street and Indiana Avenue.
- It turned out that his children were actually safe at home.
- The man said he made up the story because he had expensive rims on his car and he wanted police to find it quickly.
And the truly sad thing is, nothing of consequence will be done to discourage this type of behavior. No jail time, no civil suit to recover costs, nothing at all. We'd love to be proven wrong, but we aren't holding our breath.
