Maybe he'll stay in jail.


Probably not. The States Attorney here will probably plea bargain it down to a misdemeanor if she prosecutes it at all. The first time the witness/hero misses a court date she will have it dismissed.

Let it slide? WTF? Did you watch the video and see he was clearly wearing a registration number? What on earth gave you the impression he was running as a bandit? You're fake news. This is exactly what the dishonest news media does. Next they will be digging up dirt that he got a speeding ticket 15 years ago. You owe this standup guy and the forum an apology.

Did you read the article? Towards the end the guy, himself, admits to running as bandit. Decaf maybe?

"LaPierre said he went on to run his 12th Chicago Marathon, although he admits he's a “bandit,” meaning he sometimes runs without registering and paying."

I didn't mean to distract from the man's heroic act of disarming the scum. As for whether he ran as a bandit, he admitted himself that he was running the marathon without registering.

It's fairly easy to pin an old bib from previous races on - race officials aren't watching that closely.

Again, kudos to the man for stepping up and preventing a crime.
