Man on crutches escapes from police

Chicago, Illinois - The 49-year-old ex-convict was on crutches. But that didn’t keep James Roesch from escaping from custody at the Cook County Criminal Courthouse. Roesch was being held behind a courtroom, awaiting a bond hearing for a recent burglary arrest, when he bolted about 10 a.m., sheriff’s police spokeswoman Liane Jackson said. At some point, Roesch dumped his crutches as he fled, Jackson said. He didn’t get far. Officers caught him as he made his way outside. He was brought back in with plenty of time to spare before his bond hearing.  More
