I love this one. A man fleeing from the Chicago police tried to get away by jumping into Lake Michigan. He must have figured the officers wouldn’t follow him in. And he was right – they didn’t follow him. They simply waited on shore until he got so cold he had to come out of the water. According to authorities, officers responded to a call of a possible carjacking and pursued a suspect to the lakefront. The chase ended when the suspect dove into the lake. Police on the shore and aboard a Marine Unit boat kept an eye on him as he waded through the water. A short time later, after getting tired and cold, the suspect returned to land where he was apprehended.
