More Escapes From Police Custody

At least 2 more individuals escaped from police custody last week. Both were eventually captured. Eric Curtis was picked up by the Elmhurst police on a warrant from the Chicago Heights parole office. While being transported in the police vehicle, Curtis kicked out the back window of the police vehicle and tried to run off. He was cornered by Homewood police and tasered in the right leg and placed into custody. Curtis was charged with burglary, criminal damage to a vehicle and resisting police.

Cortez Fleming was driving a 2001 Buick LaSabre without a working headlight. The police tried to pull him over but he fled. The police checked the license plates and discovered that the car had been reported stolen in Dolton. He led the police on a chase that ended in Sauk Village. He bailed out of the car fleeing in one direction and his driverless car headed in another direction. After a short foot pursuit the police caught Fleming. He was charged with Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle, Aggravated Fleeing and Eluding and Resisting Arrest.
