I threw my GYRO & GRAPE POP at the windshield of the stolen car! Since we cannot shoot at fleeing cars anymore!
Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson helped capture three carjacking suspects Friday night on the West Side.
Johnson was already in the area on his way to a 9:30 p.m. press briefing in the Austin District when he and several other officers spotted a Lexus sedan that had been carjacked in Cicero speeding east through the district and gave chase, said Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.
“We heard on the radio that there was a carjacking so the superintendent got involved and he and about 30 other units apprehended three people,’’ Guglielmi said.
After a brief pursuit, the Lexus was curbed at Quincy Street and Laramie Avenue where the driver got out and fled on foot. Officers ran after him and placed him into custody.
