Make sure to Hit The Poll [;)] [url]http://www.local6.com/news/2272794/detail.html[/url] Business Owner Chases, Runs Over Robbery Suspects In Hummer Two Suspects In Critical Condition POSTED: 1:56 p.m. EDT June 16, 2003 UPDATED: 10:52 p.m. EDT June 16, 2003 A business owner in Phoenix, Arizona took matters into his own hands after a group of men robbed his business, according to a Local 6 News report. Police say three armed suspects walked into the Mr. Insurance building in Phoenix and demanded money. A fourth suspect was in the getaway car, according to the report. Investigators said after the suspects left with the store's money, the co-owner jumped into his Hummer and chased after the suspects. Police said that the man, identified only as Peter, followed the suspects through a neighborhood and eventually caught up with them. He then rolled his Hummer over their car. Two of the suspects were taken to the hospital in critical condition. The two other suspects managed to get away but police later caught them as well. It is not known if Peter will face charges.

It'll be a miracle if he doesn't get charged with something.

I curious to know if the Hummer did all of that damage. That car is pretty messed up. If the Hummer did that, I want one.

If they have a PC prosecutor, it's a slam-dunk certainty. Even if he isn't charged criminally, he will be sued to bankruptcy by every scumbag involved who survives, & by the money-grubbing relatives of any who don't. Unfortunately, this doesn't qualify as self-defense, and he probably won't be able to convince a jury that he was trying to make a "citizen's arrest" (even if AZ allows it). That's why most businesses tell the employees to just give the perps the money. The lawsuits for dead/injured employees or dead/injured perps will cost far more than the loss of money in the robbery. Maybe we should charge all the trial lawyers as accessories after the fact in the robberies.....

Another angle. [img]http://www.azfamily.com/images/news/stories/20030615_hummer6.jpg[/img] They are probably going to charge the guy with reckless driving. The law around here doesn't like people chasing criminals off of your own property. The irony is that, when they were on his property, he would have been well within his rights to have shot and killed all of them!

Since it was on purpose, insurence will not cover it at all.

Heck, from the pics, The Hummer doesn't look like it suffered much if any damage.
