In Chickasha, Oklahoma, Anthony Black, 21, was arrested for a particularly risky act of shoplifting. Employees at Ross Seed Company were concerned because they thought a man was handicapped and was having trouble walking. They then thought he might be drunk. They then realized it was probably the chainsaw stuck down his pants.
One employee spotted the “bar between his legs” and ran after him with other employees in hot pursuit. They cornered Black in a field and he ditched the chainsaw, climbed a tree, and jumped into a person’s house. The homeowner forced him to leave and the employees resumed the chase. He then dove head first into a creek and was later pulled out by police.
The good news is that it could have been a lot worse . . .
