Placeholder Image
A riddler gave lawmen the slip when he bailed out of a patrol car after being arrested for grand theft auto.The suspect, Seth Randall Short, 20, is charged with escape, grand theft, criminal impersonation, and simple possession of marijuana. He is also being held as a fugitive from justice as authorities in Georgia want to extradite him back there on charges.His somewhat unusual arrest came when deputies were dispatched to the Rock Island area to check out a report of a suspicious person. They arrived to find Short on foot, claiming his vehicle had run out of gas.
