Go ahead, read that headline again. That’s right, Elliott Scott carjacked a tow truck in Chicago a couple of Tuesdays ago.  However, the truck’s rightful owner tracked down the flatbed thanks to GPS, whereupon the owner found Mr. Scott in the truck’s driver seat. The owner then pulled a gun on the Mr. Carjacker and explained things.

Mr. Scott, feeling himself terribly wronged, called 9-1-1 to have the police arrest the tow truck’s owner for pointing a firearm at him. CPD cuffed the carjacker instead of the truck’s owner. After all, the truck’s owner had a concealed carry license.

At his court appearance, Mr. Scott admitted to calling 9-1-1 to the judge, whereupon his attorney told the young thief to shut up.

Only in Chicago, right?

CWB Chicago has the story.

A Grand Crossing man stole a towing company’s truck and then called 911 himself because he was upset that the truck’s driver dared to pull a gun on him, prosecutors said.

Elliott Scott, 22, is charged with aggravated possession of a stolen motor vehicle, misdemeanor theft, and driving on a suspended or revoked license.

“Mr. Scott called 911?” a befuddled Judge Charles Beach asked prosecutors after hearing their allegations.

“Yeah,” Scott interjected. “Right.”

Scott’s defense attorney quickly advised him, “it’s not best to talk about the charges” in court.

Prosecutors said police responded to a call Tuesday after someone stole a flatbed tow truck operated by Tri-City Towing from the 7400 block of South Exchange. The company’s owner provided police with its GPS coordinates, and cops went to that location.

In a city where cops manage to successfully solve only 2.7% of non-fatal shootings, it’s no wonder the tow truck’s owner went looking for his stolen truck. Because if non-fatal shootings don’t get solved, how many stolen cars or trucks do you suppose are recovered intact?

That said, it’s never a great idea to threaten or use deadly force merely to defend (or in this case, recover) property. Especially in anti-self-defense jurisdictions where Soros-funded State’s Attorneys make the charging and prosecution decisions.

Fortunately, this story had a happy ending as cops didn’t hassle the tow truck’s owner. It could have ended poorly for him, though.

  1. Hijacking a tow truck, especially a flatbed, would be a major felony because of the massive value of the vehicle, right? I wonder how much time this mental midget will have to spend in prison. Seeing as how he is probably a democrat voter, time served? (sarcasm)

  2. Only in a Socialist country is the criminal right and the victim wrong. And this black piece of shit carjacker cried because the innocent citizen protected himself from the criminal. Thank you moronic and imbecile Democrats for putting American citizens at risk.

  3. I’m thinking “time served” will be all he gets, which is probably just the arrest and his day in court. I think the judges have a weak spot in their collective hearts for these mental dim-wits and lets them go, rather than supporting them for the rest of their miserable lives behind bars. Sadly, some “graduate” to other more serious crimes that sometimes result in some innocent losing their life. I think attitude should play a part in the Judge’s decision as to what should become of them.

  4. About 25 years ago, I had an experience of a man, perhaps “high” on drugs, attack me in my own driveway. I never did understand the reason for his behavior. There was no provocation on my part; nor did we have a previous confrontation or provocation. We did not even know each other. Yet, he obviously approached me with the intent to cause me harm while I was backing up my car in my own driveway.

    To defend myself, I successfully used a revolver. When he saw the gun, when unable to get hold me, he attacked my car in frustration, and then went to call the police.

    I was prosecuted in a court of law for the unlawful use of a firearm without a criminal investigation, just on the basis of that man’s complaint.

    Fortunately, I won the case.

    1. Sorry Alvah, but the fool shouldn’t have had time to call 911, only one story told, “I feared for my life” although the aftermath of shooting even a drug-addled thug would prey upon your conscience.

  5. Yeah, the scumbag probably has a rap sheet longer than his arms and the judge is tired of seeing him in his courtroom. The problem is (and I’ll be accused of being a racist by saying this) this dumb cluck doesn’t have the mental ability to figure out what he’s doing wrong. Definition of insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

  6. A the progeny of the GREAT SOCIETY AND ‘War On Poverty’ Sixty/60 years and a trillion Dollar$ spent creating a GENERATIONS OF MENTAL DEFECTIVES, in other words Democrats. We rebuilt Japan and Western Europe after We and our allies flattened them in the BIG ONE. Fifthteen/15 years later both Germany/West and Japan were going concerns and important Allies. What We got was failure instead, thank you Demcraps!

  7. Isn’t it unbelievable how stupid our crooks of today are. Its no secret they will say anything and probably get away with most when we have the liberal judicial system we are left with.

  8. Thus, proving once again, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that Leftism is a Transmissible Mental Disease!
    Please, SPAY and NEUTER your LEFTISTS!

  9. Two comments. This incident offers impressive support for the proposition that taking liberals seriously rots the brain.
    Second, it’s good to know that Chicago law enforcement’s collective brain has not rotted (at least not yet).

    1. Imagine being a Chicago policeman and having to deal with these kind of mentally useless criminals daily and repeatedly after the revolving door justice system.
