While taping a review in the 100-block E. 8th Street Wednesday, he and his crew witnessed a car theft taking place right behind them.
According to Chicago Police, the victim saw an unknown man inside his vehicle that was parked on the side of the street in the city's South Loop neighborhood. When the victim flagged down officers in a nearby marked CPD squad car, the offender took off in the vehicle, clipping the rear of the squad car before fleeing westbound on Polk Street.
