Wheelchair getaway fails

Wheelchair getaway fails

John Cham­pion thought he had it all worked out. He robbed the con­ve­nience store on Main St. and told the store clerk that the cops weren’t gonna bust a dis­abled man. “Jeez,” he said, “even if they did, there’s no cop gonna catch me if they tried.” A few min­utes later, Deputy Graves was drum­ming his fin­gers over his hol­ster say­ing, “You need some help there son?”

Cham­pion, shak­ing his head, looked down at the sand think­ing that he should have stuck to the street and kept his wheel­chair on solid ground. He took a swig of his Bud Light.
