Wannabe gangster leads cops on chase by land and water GTA style
Jesse Pinkman, is that you?
No this is Brion (which we're guessing is some weird version of Brian) Kriss, who was arrested in Illinois on Wednesday after leading cops on a chase via car, bike, foot and then by sea (well lake). Someone's been playing too much Grand Theft Auto.
Apparently Kriss refused to cooperate with police when he was pulled over for being suspected of having a large knife which he had displayed at a previous incident, leading to a car chase across state lines in which he crashed his car, fled the scene and stole a bike and pedaled into a shopping centre. From there, police thought they had Kriss surrounded, but no, he jumped into a lake behind the mall and started swimming away from the cops.
The police eventually caught him on a sandbar but it wasn't over yet, as Kriss took down several cops before being stopped with rubber bullets and a taser. It took three police forces, a dog unit and a helicopter to take him down in the end. Supervillian much?
