Almost Got Away...
- A Northwest Side man joined runners for a portion of the Chicago Marathon on Sunday morning while fleeing police, according to authorities.
The man drew the attention of Chicago police officers after he began bumping into marathon spectators along a stretch of River North, according to police accounts. When the man saw officers, he bolted—bumping into more spectators and even some marathoners around the 200 block of West Superior Street—along Mile 12 of the marathon route, authorities say.
Officers chased the man and tackled him to the ground, according to Chicago police. While arresting the man, police say, officers discovered he was carrying illegal drugs.
Moron - go break the law where there are tens of thousands of runners, hundreds of thousands of spectators and hundreds of coppers every few yards, all on heightened alert looking for Bostonian-type malfeasance. Real brainiac there.
