Felony Fun Run
Posted on October 14, 2014
Over 40,000 people participated in this past weekend’s Chicago Marathon but only one had the benefit of direct police
“A Chicago real estate agent being chased by police on Sunday dashed onto the Chicago Marathon route and ran a portion of the famed race before being tackled to the ground by police, authorities said.
Bryan Duffy, 29, allegedly joined a pack of runners — and bumped into several of them — after police began chasing him on State Street, which is near the start of the marathon route, prosecutors said.”
Not a bad idea – blend in with your surroundings if only it wasn’t for the button down shirt (and probably pants) that’s a dead giveaway you’re not a marathon runner.
“Officers caught and tackled him to the ground in the 200 block of West Superior Street, according to a police report. In court, during a brief hearing Monday, Duffy’s face revealed apparent road rash.
Officers found an Altoids box with 10 capsules of suspected MDMA (also known as ecstasy or Molly) and a wad of bills totaling $531, according to a police report.
Duffy was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest and reckless conduct for putting marathon runners in danger, according to the report.”
We’re of the opinion that the whole idea behind running 26.2 miles should be considered “reckless conduct”.
