Chicago Teen Steals Car Because It's "Too Damn Cold For A Bus"
With a summer that lingered a little longer than it should've, and a fall season that allowed for sweaters and a light jacket, Old Man Winter has finally reared its ugly head. Some parts of the nation have fared better than others, however, Chicago is known for its harsh, unforgiving winters and hasn't switched up now. Last weekend, when the weather reached the teens, one teen took matters into his own hands.
According to NBC 5 Chicago, 18-year-old Eduardo Rivera told police he stole a car had been unlocked and running because "it was too damn cold to wait at the bus stop." Rivera is accused of a stealing a car that was parked near his home on the 2300 block of North Austin Avenue.
Rivera was later seen at about 10AM driving with two other passengers on the 2300 block of North Austin Avenue. He was taken in and charged with a possession of a stolen motor vehicle. He appeared in court On Thursday.
While the weather remained dreadful, as of Monday (Dec. 19) the high in the Windy City was a laughable 15 degrees. Stay warm, Chicago, and by stay warm, we don't mean steal someone else's car.
