|The Perp being arrested
Sad Story, Great Picture!
Midtown Memphis - When Vernon Roberts, an
independent contractor, jumped out of his Chevy Suburban to speak to the owner of a home
he was working on, the man at the left (allegedly) jumped into his vehicle and took
off. But not before Vernon managed to get a firm grip of the passenger door.
The Perp then tried to throw Vernon off the truck by weaving violently back and
forth. He even tried scraping Vernon off against a pole. Finally, the Perp
flipped the truck sending Vernon 20-30 feet into the air. He landed in the middle
of busy Poplar Avenue and was severely injured.
The good news (besides that the Perp was caught), was that when the truck
flipped, he was covered in white mortar. The mortar then began to harden as he ran
sweating through Midtown. To say the least, he was easy to spot.
