Don’t mess with a cop’s Corvette!
That’s the underlying story from Chicago after a sheriff’s deputy shot a teenager who tried to steal his Corvette on Monday evening.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports that an unnamed 50-year-old Cook County Sheriff’s deputy was on his lunch break and took his 2015 Arctic White Corvette Stingray to a car wash in the Little Village neighborhood around 8:30 pm.
As the deputy stepped away from the car for a moment, a 16-year-old boy jumped in the vehicle. The deputy pulled his handgun and fired shots at the teen, striking him in the shoulder.
The photo shows shattered glass on the ground as authorities taped off the area for the investigation.
The teen boy was transported to Stroger Hospital and police say his injuries were non-life threatening. Following the incident, the deputy also complained of shortness of breath and he was transported to Rush University Medical Center.
